Event Details

This interactive panel is part of Geneva Peace Week 2018. It will explore how nonviolent action and peacebuilding approaches (and their respective frameworks at the policy level) can be strategically integrated to build just, sustainable peace that puts human rights at the center. Experts and practitioners in peacebuilding, nonviolent action, and human rights will discuss new policy developments, research, and case studies that highlight how nonviolent action and peacebuilding approaches can support human rights activists and conversely, how upholding human rights can help peacebuilders to more effectively fight exclusion and advance justice. Panelists will also discuss how donors can better support nontraditional civic actors and grassroots movements to advance more just and peaceful societies.

  • Shaazka Beyerle, Senior Research Advisor, U.S. Institute of Peace

Logistics:

 

All participants and speakers who do not have a valid UNOG grounds pass must register via the UNOG registration system - INDICO. They will then receive a single badge valid from 7 to 9 November 2018 and will be able to attend all events of Geneva Peace Week 2018 without further additional registration.

 

In order to register two steps are required:

  • Step 1: Create an account in INDICO (if you do not already have one). 
  • Step 2: Register for the badge to the Palais des Nations here

INDICO - UNOG will open the registration on Monday 24 September 2018.

Registration will be open till the end of the Geneva Peace Week, however we encourage participants to register as early as possible.

When participants register online, they first receive an email saying that their registration is pending approval. Once it is approved, they receive another email informing that their request has been approved or rejected. Participants must bring this confirmation (printed or electronic) in order to receive a badge.

Badges can be received from 8 a.m. onwards on 7 November 2018 at the Pregny Gate of the Palais des Nations. Participants will be required to bring a photo ID along with the Indico confirmation of registration.
