On August 24th, the Permanent Missions of Afghanistan and Timor-Leste, along with CIC, hosted a discussion on the role of conflict, peace, and security in the post-2015 development framework. The primary purpose of the meeting was to allow for an informal exchange among member states to foster a common understanding on building peace, tackling instability and promoting governance.

The debates surrounding the creation of a new development framework to follow the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have progressed significantly over the last three months, but will only gain in momentum and complexity as 2015 draws closer. CIC’s new publication, What Happens Now? Taking the Post-2015 Agenda to the Next Stage, considers both the substance and process for current debates on the post-2015 agenda.
On August 28, 2013 the NYU Center on International Cooperation and the United Nations Foundation convened an informal meeting to discuss how best to advance the building stable societies agenda as part of the post-2015 framework.
