This year’s programme will explore disarmament in its relation to conflict resolution, mediation and peacebuilding. Disarmament is a critical component of a peace that can be sustained. Sustainable peace also requires the involvement of multiple stakeholders, including women. One current, tragic example of the failure of disarmament and inclusive and sustainable peacebuilding is the Central African Republic: where the lack of an effective disarmament process and insufficiently representative national and local dialogue process have resulted in detrimental consequences, including possible acts of ethnic cleansing and genocide.
