UNV Issue brief: Peacebuilding and volunteerism. Considerations for the post-2015 agenda
UN Volunteer programme, 2014
by: United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme

Using evidence from post-conflict situations, this Issue Brief demonstrates how volunteerism can be a key means for supporting national peacebuilding and global sustainable development. The engagement of citizens through volunteerism can be powerful in promoting social cohesion and reconciliation, and helping to develop national civilian capacities. All of these make a critical positive difference in peacebuilding processes and initiatives.

This issue brief supports UNV’s advocacy efforts to recognize volunteerism in the post-2015 development agenda as a form of civic engagement that provides a key complementary mechanism for social, economic and environmental transformation.
