Organizations that work to build peace in fragile states often fail to meet the stated goals of the programs they design to resolve violent conflict. In her newly published book, "Global Governance and Local Peace: Accountability and Performance in International Peacebuilding", Susanna Campbell dives into why peacebuilding organizations often fail and presents one of the keys to success: local actors that force organizations to stay accountable to local peacebuilding goals.

Join experts at an event at the United States Institute of Peace, as they discuss Campbell’s findings and how country-based staff can sidestep normal accountability procedures and empower local actors to push for innovative solutions to local problems.

Sexual violence is frequently used as a systematic weapon of war against women and men and may amount to a crime against humanity during times of conflict and times of peace. Research that illustrates the forms, frequency and context of sexual violence is critical to help build peace and prevent the recurrence of such violence. On 17 July, the U.S. Institute of Peace, Oxfam and the Latin America Working Group hold a discussion on addressing sexual violence in peace processes using evidence from recent survey results from Colombia.

The event will be live-streamed in Spanish, with English translation provided for guests on-site. An English recording will be made available online following the event.

Many atrocities take place against a backdrop of armed conflict. While atrocity prevention and conflict prevention are different, the latter can contribute to the former. On 6 March, the World Bank Group and the United Nations will present their joint study “Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict”. The joint study offers national and international actors an agenda for action on how conflict can be prevented from turning violent.

In 2017, a half-million Rohingya fled attacks on their homes in Burma. Eight million face starvation amid Yemen’s war. Atrocities against civilians continue in Syria, South Sudan and elsewhere. What lessons did we learn from the Holocaust – if any? And how can we strengthen norms and institutions to prevent future atrocities more effectively? Join USIP on January 30 for a discussion on the state of atrocity prevention with leading experts, including GAAMAC Chair Ms. Mǒ Bleeker.
