Description

Disarmament that Saves Lives: How Conventional Arms Control Can Help Build and Sustain Peace

The United Nations Secretary-General launched his Disarmament Agenda in Geneva in May. In the ‘Disarmament that Saves Lives’ section, the Secretary-General calls for an examination of how disarmament and arms control can better contribute to conflict prevention. This event will consider why such an examination is vital and how conventional arms control could be better linked into conflict prevention, peace building and sustaining peace.

At this event, expert speakers from the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research, the United Nations Department of Political Affairs and a State with experience on these issues will:

- examine how conventional arms control supports conflict prevention and peacebuilding efforts;

- consider the role of arms control in sustaining peace;

- discuss synergies between arms control and peacebuilding; and

- consider how integration could be improved.

This event is organized by the United Kingdom, The United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research, The United Nations Department of Political Affairs and Geneva Disarmament Platform.
