Spaces for Dialogue
swisspeace provides multi-stakeholder platforms for exchange, joint analysis, critical debates, and networking in order to find innovative approaches and new strategies to peacebuilding challenges.
This includes the exchange between peacebuilding actors, researchers and practitioners frm different sectors including peacebuilding, humanitarian aid, development cooperation and the security sector, as well as between conflict parties and those affected by conflict. Our role is to provide spaces to facilitate dialogue processes and, if needed, to support these with internal and external expertise.
