UN Global Compact work stream on "Business and Peace"


The United Nations Global Compact has developed a work stream on business and peace providing a forum for dialogue on corporate contribution to conflict prevention, peace and development.  The business and peace work stream is an integral part of the UN Global Compact, which is a voluntary policy initiative for business on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

The work stream offers UN Global Compact participants a platform for discussions about practical solutions and policy developments about business and peace.  As such, the initiative organises meetings and events, and drafts reports.

Among the ongoing projects of the initiative is a consultation process to help clarify what constitutes responsible investment in conflict-affected countries and a good practice guide which will showcase how companies from different sectors are contributing to peace and development in difficult operating environments around the world.

Its website also links to resources, other guidance materials and organizations in this field.
