FriEnt is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the launch of a new blog series. The Future-needs-Peacebuilding Blog examines the future challenges and opportunities of peacebuilding for local, national and international actors.
The Future-needs-Peacebuilding Blog examines the future challenges and opportunities of peacebuilding for local, national and international actors. Authors from academia, policy level and the practical field share new perspectives and impulses on seven topic areas relevant to the future of peacebuilding
In the first section of our new blog series, we will take a closer look at the link between business and peace.
The growing influence of private actors and economic investment in fragile and conflict affected countries gives rise to new responsibilities for business actors to contribute to conflict prevention and peacebuilding. Thus, the way to secure a peaceful future lies in finding innovative and constructive entry points which strengthen the link between business and peace.
Both of our opening articles focus on the role of China’s expanding economic influence in its periphery. The authors aim to illustrate the dynamics of economic investment in conflict-affected contexts and extrapolate solution-oriented approaches for bridging the gap between different actors and their agendas in the respective context.
