The U.S. Mission to the United Nations in Geneva and the Department of State’s Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations (CSO) are pleased to sponsor a panel discussion during Geneva Peace Week on stabilization methods in conflict-impacted countries, a topic of increasing importance for individual countries, the UN, and regional and global coalitions. Despite the inclusion of stabilization in the mandate of UN peacekeeping operations and individual countries’ policy frameworks there is no broadly held definition of “stabilization,” and views vary on the utility of stabilization approaches.
This event will bring together panelists representing a variety of perspectives to discuss stabilization as part of the international “toolbox” for addressing violent conflict and how it intersects with other critical areas, including humanitarian assistance, human rights advocacy, and longer-term peacebuilding. The panel will focus on contemporary approaches to stabilization, best practices in policy and planning, and the “nexus” between stabilization and humanitarian and development agendas.
