- Global perspectives on peacebuilding: Much theory and practice of peacebuilding is rooted in the intellectual traditions and historical experiences of Euro-Atlantic societies. This cluster invites speakers who discuss approaches to preventing and resolving violent conflict and building peace that are rooted in diverse traditions and know-how across the world.
- Building peace in Europe: This cluster examines the peacebuilding frontiers in Europe. It invites speakers on the peacebuilding implications of ongoing and escalating political and social conflicts on the European continent. Speakers should focus on how peacebuilding knowledge and practice could address and mitigate the rising tension and polarization in Europe.
- Multilateralism in transition: The state-centric system is experiencing change towards more interaction with other sectors. Trends suggest a greater focus on transnational connections and more interactive modes of working. This cluster invites speakers who discuss the peacebuilding implications of UN reforms and on the growth of city and corporate diplomacy around peace and conflict issues, chronic urban violence and exclusion, or conflict dynamics in cyber space.
- Open programme: Speaker submissions that do not fall within the three focus clusters may be part of an open programme.
