IHIP partnering with IFRC and GCERF @ 5-9 Nov 2018 Geneva Peace Week

Partnering for peace: How to drive stability and peace through and alongside humanitarian responses


Tuesday, 6 November 2018 from 14:30 to 15:45


Over the last decade, we have witnessed an increase in suffering in the most fragile of places, and how violent extremist groups aggravate these crises. In many fragile contexts, violent conflict and the resulting loss of lives and displacement shapes the crisis and frames the humanitarian response. While much of the international assistance in the midst of a complex crisis seeks to alleviate suffering by addressing the effects of conflict, there are important yet often untapped opportunities to lay the groundwork for peace through and alongside humanitarian responses. Panellists will illustrate different approaches to driving stability, peace and preventing violent extremism within humanitarian contexts and explore the benefits and challenges of partnering across sectors. This includes partnerships between the infrastructure and local private sector, and between humanitarian and preventing violent extremism actors.
