Peace and the Post-2015 Development Agenda
In January 2014, the Igarapé Institute, together with Saferworld, co-hosted two round-tables in Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro with representatives of the Brazilian government, civil society, intergovernmental bodies, and academia on the inclusion of peace in the post-2015 development agenda. These sessions were designed to generate a better understanding of Brazil’s position and to create a space for constructive engagement on whether peace, or associated issues such as security, justice and governance, should be included in the SDGs.
This briefing is informed by these consultations. It examines Brazil’s position on the inclusion of peace within the post-2015 development agenda and also engages with some of the arguments that Brazil has made to date. It was prepared by Sunil Suri (Saferworld) with input from Robert Muggah and Eduarda Hamann (The Igarapé Institute). The report also benefited from comments provided by Larry Attree and Ivan Campbell (Saferworld) and Renata Giannini (The Igarapé Institute).
