[The Elders Series] Conflict: Cause, Effect and the Art of Making Peace

Lakhdar Brahimi, veteran conflict mediator and former UN diplomat, joins fellow Elder Mary Robinson to discuss peace, conflict, and leadership.

In 2019 alone, 54 state-based conflicts and 67 non-state conflicts were recorded around the world – the highest number since 1946. While poor governance and corruption are leading causes of conflict, there are now new drivers of conflict such as climate change, growing inequalities, and forced migration. According to the United Nations Office of Coordination of Humanitarian Assistance (UNOCHA), almost a quarter of the world’s population live in countries and territories affected by crises and conflicts. The effects of conflict primarily affect poor and marginalized groups and people and one in every 70 people worldwide live in a conflict crisis setting and are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance, according to the UN.

In this episode, hosts Hazami Barmada and Mary Robinson discuss global trends in conflict with veteran UN diplomat Lakhdar Brahimi. What are the causes and consequences of conflict? What emphasis should the international community place on peacebuilding versus peacemaking and peacekeeping? What kind of leadership does the world need to shift current trends in war? How effective are current international systems, including the United Nations, at maintaining peace and curbing the consequences of conflict?
