This section examines the concept of ‘sustaining peace’, which was promoted in two influential reviews of United Nations activities concluding in 2015: the Report of the Advisory Group of Experts for the 2015 Review of the United Nations Peacebuilding Architecture (AGE Report); and the Report of the High-Level Independent Panel on United Nations Peace Operations (HIPPO Report). The concept was then confirmed in 2016 as the UN’s overarching conceptual framework for building peace, through identical resolutions issued by the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly.1 According to the resolutions, sustaining peace is both ‘a goal and a process to build a common vision of a society, ensuring that the needs of all segments of the population are taken into account’ in ‘activities aimed at preventing the outbreak, escalation, continuation and recurrence of conflict, addressing root causes, assisting parties to conflict to end hostilities, ensuring national reconciliation, and moving towards recovery, reconstruction and development’.2 The concept of sustaining peace calls for better linkages between the UN’s three foundational pillars of peace and security, development, and human rights, in addition to humanitarian action. It replaces what until now has been a sequential approach to conflict that often resulted in silos—notably silos of prevention, humanitarian action, peacekeeping, peacebuilding and development—and calls for better linkages and sharing of instruments across these different sets of responses.3
