Jobs for Peace - What Does It Take?

"There is no shortcut to peacebuilding" is one of the important lessons from the latest CDA/ FriEnt/ IA dossier "Business&Peace – it takes two to tango!". ILO has developed a manual with tools to measure how job creation can have a positive impact on peace and has started to test and adapt it in different contexts. These experiences provide first insights into how positive impact on peace and conflict through job creation can be measured and how those positive impacts can be systematized and enhanced. GIZ is currently developing a toolbox for Sustainable Economic Development in contexts of fragility and forced displacement which build on ILO’s theory of change and offers principles for ensuring a positive impact of economic development interventions on peace.

The workshop will present first hand experiences on the question of how projects for job creation have to be set up in order to contribute to peacebuilding in conflict ridden and fragile states. Two of the authors of our joint dossier, will comment and ask questions for further research and implementation.
