Starting with a review of day one of the conference, moderator Natasha Walker will discuss in an interview with Natscha Zupan, Director of the Working Group on Peace and Development (FriEnt), and Dan Smith, Director of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), learnings and ideas on the future of partnerships.
At the FriEnt PBF 2021 and the 2021 Stockholm Forum on Peace and Development conferences, the great diversity of contexts and partnerships for peacebuilding becomes visible and novel approaches and solutions to promoting peace are being explored. In view of this diversity, Natsacha Zupan and Dan Smith explore in their conversation lessons and ideas on the future of partnerships.
The discussion wil concentrate on the following questions: What does the great diversity of contexts and partnerships mean for actively shaping the future of peacebuilding? Which options should we be realizing now? And which are the crucial roles that are needed?
