Thematic Review on Local Peacebuilding

Publisher: Peace Building Fund

Volume: 53 pages, pdf                  


Thematic Review on Local Peacebuilding, commissioned by the UN Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO) of the Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs (DPPA) in partnership with PeaceNexus Foundation and UN Volunteers (UNV) programme, provides a comparative analysis of local-level peacebuilding initiatives funded by the UN Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) from 2015 to 2021, and situates the Fund’s work against global research and practice of local peacebuilding. Informed by four case studies led by young researchers recruited through National UN Volunteers modality in Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Kyrgyzstan, and the Western Balkans, the Review offers insights into how local peacebuilding is conceptualized and operationalized in a range of contexts and regions, with emphasis on the involvement of young people and volunteers in local peacebuilding initiatives. The Review outlines practical recommendations for the PBF and its fund applicants and recipients as well as the community of peacebuilding practitioners at large to help guide the design of future local peacebuilding programming.
