SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

Il ne se passe pas une journée sans que notre planète ne soit confrontée à la souffrance de millions de personnes causée par les ravages des conflits armés et de la guerre. Le règlement pacifique des différends et le maintien de la paix et de la sécurité internationales constituent l’une des principales raisons à l’origine de la création de l’Organisation des Nations Unies.

SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

Not a day goes by without our world being confronted with the suffering of millions of people because of the ravage of armed conflict and war. The peaceful resolution of conflict and the maintenance of international peace and security are amongst the principle reasons why the United Nations was established. Peacebuilding is at the heart of the UN’s work and continues to be a pressing priority for all UN Member States (A/69/968–S/2015/490).

SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

Les opérations de maintien de la paix des Nations Unies reposent traditionnellement sur le personnel militaire. Au cours des 25 dernières années, les fonctions de police et les fonctions civiles se sont imposées de façon exponentielle comme une réponse aux nouveaux conflits et aux menaces émergentes contre la paix dans le monde entier.

SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

UN peacekeeping operations traditionally rely on military personnel. Over the last 25 years, police and civilian functions have exponentially grown as a response to new conflicts and emerging threats to peace around the world, but also in response to calls for a stronger “people focus” of peace operations. UN operations are now tasked with maintaining peace but also supporting institutions of governance, human rights monitoring, security sector reform, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of former combatants and other critical areas in order to build a truly sustainable peace.

Goma, Democratic Republic of the Congo: Since November 2014, I have been assigned with the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the DR Congo (MONUSCO) as a United Nations Volunteer Associate Civil Affairs Officer. Civil Affairs appealed to me because it works at the most local level, with a strong emphasis on field presence. I work in the area of Protection of Civilians (POC), one of the key priorities in MONUSCO’s mandate.
