The Peace Talks is an initiative that showcases the inspirational stories of people making a positive contribution to peace. The vision of the Peace Talks is to expand the space for dialogue about building peace and resolving conflict. Through individual Peace Talks, speakers from different sectors and industries share their personal stories, ideas and practical solutions to resolve conflict.
The spirit of the Peace Talks is one of collaboration and reinforces that each and every person has a role to play in peace.
The Peace Talks were co-founded by the United Nations Office at Geneva, Interpeace and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform with the support of the Swiss Government.
The Peace Talks started in 2013 in Switzerland through the first-ever Geneva Peace Talks and have travelled to Stockholm with the Swedish Parliament, to Nairobi together with the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) at the United Nations Office at Nairobi, and to Ottawa with the Global Centre for Pluralism at the Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat.
