Joining forces with UNITAR to build peace online

Unitar The Kofi Annan Foundation is partnering with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) on the creation of a new digital platform to strengthen the capacity of the peacebuilding and mediation community in truth-seeking, reconciliation and accountability for crimes committed during conflict.

Safe and easy access to peacebuilding knowledge and good practice have become even more essential at this time of Covid-19 crisis. Delayed diplomatic initiatives and halts to mediation processes have in many cases prevented divided societies from receiving the support they need to establish effective approaches to lasting peace.

This joint effort will benefit from the Foundation’s extensive research findings on peace and transitional justice, and from UNITAR’s considerable experience in designing and delivering online training.
