This written discussion is part a new month-long Challenge with Indiana University around the question: “What role can business play in pursuit of peace?” The Challenge consists an online programme of written articles and online discussions, available on the Challenge homepage.
Despite the fact that broad macroeconomic connections between business and peace have long been acknowledged more needs to be done. This Challenge aims to deepen understanding around the role that business can play in peacekeeping, peace making, and peace building.
This discussion focuses on practical examples and lessons from business contributions to peace. A one-hour live panel will take place Wednesday 19 October from 10am ET / 3pm UK.
The discussion will focus on three questions:
- Can you share practical examples of companies that have explicitly or implicitly impacted on peace? What lessons might we draw from their work?
- Thinking about some of the current trends, what are some of the other ways in which businesses can most effectively contribute to peace?
- How can different stakeholders, from business, government and civil society best work together in pursuit of peace?
