The meeting will serve as one of the critical events in the process leading up to the High-Level Meeting of the General Assembly to be convened by the President on 24-25 April 2018 and a valuable platform for the relevant stakeholders to present their perspectives. The event will engage diverse stakeholders in the discussion on preventing conflict and addressing its root causes. Participants will include university students and faculty, private sector representatives, civil society organizations, and Government representatives.
This half-day dialogue will provide a platform for learning and exchange on this topic. It will foster conversation among all participants on challenges and opportunities for sustaining peace in practice. Through this event and subsequent meetings, it is hoped that momentum can be built and sustained beyond the UN, and that greater visibility will be given to this critical issue.
