The 2017 edition of the Geneva Peace Week will be held on 6–10 November 2017, in Geneva, Switzerland.
The initiative is facilitated by the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform, in collaboration the Swiss Confederation. Through meetings and events on topics related to the promotion of peace, the Geneva Peace Week aims to maximise synergies between organisations in Geneva focused on peace, and attempts to break down the silos which often characterise the international community and can limit more creative responses.
This year, the Geneva Peace Week will focus on the theme of 'Prevention and effective pathways for implementation'. It will give participants from multiple sectors and institutions an opportunity to take stock about the progress towards solutions for the prevention of violent conflicts and to look into the future of prevention practice.
