UNITAR is strongly committed to support the global movement to promote the Culture of Peace. The Institute’s contribution centers on the efforts to enhance capacities of individuals, organizations and institutions – from grassroots to policy levels – to prevent and resolve violent conflicts and build sustainable peace.

Through a variety of learning-related events (briefings, courses and workshop), the Peacekeeping Training Programme strives to develop the potential of different actors to constructively contribute to peacebuilding processes. Online learning opportunities – on topics, such as Civilian Capacities to Protect Civilians from Violence and Women, Leadership and Peacebuilding – directly contribute to national and international efforts intended for sustaining a global culture of peace, by engaging civil society and other relevant stakeholders – including youth – in bringing about peaceful settlement of violent conflicts and fostering intercultural dialogue, understanding and cooperation for peace.
