Embedded Peace Infrastructures for Peace-Approaches and Lessons Learned

2016. Author: Hans J. Giessmann and Berghof Foundation

This paper argues that “Infrastructures for Peace” can help reconcile tensions that can arise from simultaneously addressing the dynamics of political, social and economic transformation, especially in contexts where the capacities to deal with conflict in a peaceful manner are weak. In addition to providing key insights on the concept, design and tailoring of I4P processes to national contexts, this paper also elaborates on recommendations to improve and expand the potential role that UNDP can play in promoting and supporting I4P - both in conceptual terms and in practice.
