Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and Sustaining Peace: Developing New Insights into Peacebuilding

Project: Non-funded ProjectProjects


This knowledge exchange project aims to enhance knowledge and understanding of the role of economic and social rights (ESRs) in sustaining peace. The idea is to exchange knowledge and share practices and experiences of the use of such rights within the peacebuilding and human rights communities and across disciplines to develop innovative practice. In particular we aim to:
•Assist in networking traditional and non-traditional actors in peacebuilding (including ESRs actors)
• Advance innovative practice and thinking on peacebuilding and ESRs
•Strengthen the relationship between academia, human rights actors and peacebuilding actors including the UN Peacebuilding Architecture and UN OHCHR, as well relevant UN agencies and departments and NGOs.
•Expand space for dialogue about realising rights, building peace and resolving conflict across different institutions and sectors.
•Develop an enhanced and broader understanding amongst practitioners and academics of promising practices in the peacebuilding and economic and social rights fields.
