Meeting Summary | Global Perspectives on Peaceful and Inclusive Societies and the Post-2015 Framework: A Dialogue between Member States and Experts

In September 2014, the Mission of Mexico to the United Nations, in partnership with the NYU Center on International Cooperation and Saferworld, convened a meeting bringing together representatives from UN member states as well as experts from around the world for an interactive discussion with member states and civil society on peaceful societies and the post-2015 development framework.

Topics covered included: development approaches to reducing violence and crime-prevention, including the experience of Mexico; various stakeholders’ perspectives on peaceful and inclusive societies in the post-2015 agenda; strengths and weaknesses and areas of consensus and potential improvement of Goal 16 of the OWG outcome document and its related targets; the next steps forward in the post-2015 negotiation process; and concerns and questions regarding capacity of all actors to influence the post-2015 agenda, the means of implementation, sovereignty, and aid conditionalities.

This note provides a brief summary of the main points that emerged during the discussion, which was held under the Chatham House Rule. Read the meeting summary on the Global Perspectives on Peaceful and Inclusive Societies Roundtable.
