Stockholm Peace Forum: What does a resilience perspective add to peacebuilding?


Resilience approaches that aim to strengthen the capacity of communities and systems to navigate crises are increasingly being advocated as alternatives to more top-down measures dependent on international and external actors. Do they really add value, or are they just a fad with no meaningful analytical or programmatic advantages, or a way for international actors to abdicate responsibility? In this session, we invite resilience enthusiasts and sceptics to have a frank discussion on the value of resilience approaches in peacebuilding, and share the evidence that underpins their contrasting views.
