We’re building a new UNITAR.org.

As we swap out old for new, pages will be in transition. Thanks for your patience – please keep coming back to see the improvements.


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.
