Pathfinders: History and Prospects
This paper provides a history of the Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies, a platform convened by the governments of Brazil, Sierra Leone and Switzerland, and the Center on International Cooperation. It explains the origins, purpose and content of the Roadmap for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies–a guide to the implementation of the SDG16+ targets. The Pathfinders will now support national and international delivery, and "grand challenges" on justice, violence prevention, and inclusion ahead of the High-level Political Forums in 2019. As an action platform, the work of the Pathfinders complements the Global Alliance for Reporting Progress on Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies with its focus on reporting, and the 16+ Forum which showcases national and subnational models and successes.
