 Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd Hosting IPI "The Culture of Sustaining Peace" High Level  Forum
 
 
WPTV reported: On September 5, during the 2018 High-level Forum on Peace Culture at United Nations Headquarters, the International Peace Institute and the Al-Babtain Foundation jointly organized a United Nations high-level annual forum entitled “The Culture of Sustaining Peace.”. The forum was hosted by former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. The forum seeks to provide input into the high-level forum by building upon the Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace adopted by the UN General Assembly in Resolution 53/243 in 1999. 
 
Thanks in part to high-level discussions at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly, 2018 has seen marked progress in understanding what it takes to sustain peace. Increasingly, international actors and analysts are looking at the positive elements of peace. Instead of asking, “What causes war and how can we fight it?” people are asking, “What makes a peaceful society and how can we build and sustain it?”. Exploring the connections between culture, peace, security, and development is key to answering this question.
 
In the multilateral system, the concept of the “culture of peace” originated in 1992 in a program of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The concept of “sustaining peace” came out of the 2015 Advisory Group of Experts Review of the Peacebuilding Architecture and was affirmed in dual resolutions by the UN General Assembly and Security Council on peacebuilding and sustaining peace in 2016. How do these two concepts relate? How can they work together? On the sidelines of the 2018 High-Level Forum on the Culture of Peace, participants at this policy forum will discuss the connections between these two agendas and how they can be used to advance peace worldwide.
