  44. 44. State of the Art Peacebuilding: Key Findings (1/4) <ul><li>Peacebuilding is not only an activity or series of activities, it is an impact. This impact is twofold: 1) stopping violence and destructive conflict; and 2) building a just and sustainable peace. Interventions aiming at peacebuilding should increase positive and minimize negative effects. </li></ul>
  45. 45. State of the Art Peacebuilding: Key Findings (2/4) <ul><li>Not all conflicts become violent; they should be seen as potentially contributing to positive change. Conflicts are complex social, political, cultural, economic phenomena, which warrant in depth and continuous analysis and reflection. The most appropriate way of dealing with conflict is therefore not to prevent or resolve it, but to try to transform it. </li></ul>
  46. 46. State of the Art Peacebuilding: Key Findings (3/4) <ul><li>Separate, well-intended programmes aimed at contributing to peace, do not automatically add up to the BIG Peace. The main consideration to be given to peacebuilding from a programming perspective is whether the intervention is effective in contributing to the BIG Peace. </li></ul>
  47. 47. State of the Art Peacebuilding: Key Findings (4/4) <ul><li>Youth should not be seen as a homogenous group, but rather as a heterogeneous group with widely differing needs, interests and ambitions. Young people have great, largely untapped peacebuilding resources. They should be regarded as active agents in their own lives and capable participants in their communities. Increasing their resilience and socio-political engagement should be the main foci of peacebuilding interventions for young people. </li></ul>
