Building National “Infrastructures for Peace” - UN Assistance for Internally Negotiated Solutions to Violent Conflict

2013. Author: Chetan Kumar

This paper presents the concept of infrastructures for peace as departing from the traditional approaches to conflict prevention. It states that external mediation may need to be complemented or substituted where entry points do not exist, with the development and application of national and local capacities for conflict prevention and for internal mediation. The paper offers examples of recent United Nations assistance on building such local capacities, and gives some preliminary best practices and pointers toward future conflict-prevention practice.
