The Geneva Peacebuilding Platform (GPP)
Founded in 2008, the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform is an action-oriented forum where stakeholders can build upon the contributions of Geneva to peacebuilding worldwide. It is led and operated by its stakeholders through an Advisory Board, serving the needs they determine, and working to showcase their policy, research, problems and successes in peacebuilding activities. The Platform facilitates cooperation and dialogue among peacebuilding actors in Geneva through a number of structured activities as well as informal discussions and debates.
The Platform works to consolidate the critical mass of peacebuilding actors, resources and expertise in Geneva. In particular, it plays a creative role in facilitating interaction with the Peacebuilding Commission, to which International Geneva can add much expertise, field experience, and a vibrant network of civil society organisations. Geneva is also an ideal location to strengthen stakeholder relations. The Platform thus acts as a Knowledge Platform, an Interface, and a Neutral Forum for Dialogue.
The Platform is a partnership between the Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding (CCDP) at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), Interpeace and the Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO).
