The discussion, opened and moderated by UNOG Director-General Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, brought together diplomats, practitioners and academe for a dialogue on the evolution of peacebuilding since the League of Nations period. Held on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the International Day of Peace (celebrated on 21 September) the event provided a platform for panellists to share differing perspectives on the role of the United Nations in peacebuilding – both historically and in today’s context.
