Policy Lab on Multilateralism, Peace and Security
The Institute for Economics and Peace will join leading international experts and decision-makers to discuss the role of the private sector in the field of peace and security.
Register to be a part of Policy Lab on Multilateralism, Peace and Security: Strengthening the Rules-Based Multilateral Framework to Sustain Peace to discuss our opportunities to promote peace and development in a coordinated manner worldwide.
As part of the event, Serge Stroobants, Director of Europe and MENA for the Institute for Economics and Peace, will take part in a discussion about the role of the private sector in the peace and security field.
The session titled Action Lab: Multi-stakeholder Approach: The Impact of Peace-Promoting Private Sector and Conflict-Sensitive Business Practices will discuss how to maximise the role of the private sector as an agent for peace and stability, with the use of trade and high-impact technology for conflict prevention and peacebuilding in the context of the 2020 recession and its social and political consequences.
Hosted by Club de Madrid, in coordination with the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Crisis Management Initiative (CMI), the event will bring together former heads of state and government, leading international experts and decision-makers, to discuss a multilateral system that sustains peace and prosperity.
Societies from all over the world continue to suffer the consequences of escalating crisis and the impact of growing worldwide instability. The fact that the COVID-19 pandemic put a stop to increasing progress in peace and development demonstrates just how exposed global mechanisms to achieve these goals are.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a key achievement of contemporary multilateralism, provides a blueprint for global peace and prosperity. The 75th Anniversary of the United Nations is also an opportunity to make today’s multilateral framework better fit to sustain peace.
