Peacemaking in the twenty-first century

Kofi Annan

This chapter takes a particular focus on the role of the United Nations in helping people in fractured societies to work together to build a lasting peace. It identifies nine lessons: say no when we need to; know where you are going; know the context; never neglect security; manage expectations; stay on course; get the sequencing right; keep everyone on the same page; local populations should take responsibility. It argues that the most important lessons of all is that we must be listening looking out for new knowledge.
