The conference marks the 20th anniversary of the United Nations' An Agenda for Peace. This landmark document, building on knowledge and insight provided by both peace researchers and U.N. practitioners in the field, focused attention on building peace in the long-term in war-torn societies.  As a consequence of its publication, non-military sources of instability and violence became explicit factors shaping UN peace planning and the notion of peacebuilding gained common currency.

The conference will bring together a number of eminent and well-published scholars, each of whom will make a presentation in their area of expertise.
The theme of the conference is how globalization, broadly conceived, has advanced and/or retarded progress on various, central dimensions of the longer term process of peacebuilding. These dimensions include economic development, technology, religion, ethnicity and identity, the environment, health, democracy, human rights, diaspora groups and conflict transformation. The conference will close with a discussion of the major challenges to successful peacebuilding over the coming decades.
