Durable Peace: Building Better Peace Processes Through Partnerships

It is essential to rethink the way peace processes are designed and structured. Additionally, it is time to move from peace processes guided by short-term milestones, mechanically leading to negative peace, to long-term solutions that can generate positive peace. Only better ownership of peace processes by civilians in conflict zones and increased diplomatic force from all stakeholders can yield tangible results. How can better funding and the use of new technologies make peace processes more sustainable and effective?
