Just Governance for Human Security

Trust building: the critical factor for sustainable peace

Tuesday, 2. July 2019 - 14:45 to Saturday, 6. July 2019 - 16:00


Trust building consistently emerges as the critical aspect needed to advance human security on all levels. This year, the focus will be on three human security pillars: good governance, social inclusion and healing memory. These three areas are particularly in need of focused attention given the increase in tension, conflict and uncertainty in the international political climate.

We will, as in previous years, link these to the Sustainable Development Goals with a particular focus on the following: Reduced inequalities (goal 10), Gender equality (goal 5) and Partnership for the goals (goal 17).


Who is this event for?

The event is for representatives in the private, public and civil society sectors who have a focus on human security. It will be of particular interest for:

  • Policy makers
  • Activists
  • Community leaders


Why this event?

The objective of this time together is to explore options for tackling the root causes of mistrust related specifically to good governance, social inclusion and healing memory. There will be opportunity to create new networks and peer-to-peer mentoring for participants to strengthen and expand their work and projects after their time in Caux. This will happen through dialogue, reflection, personal interaction and active listening in small ‘community groups’.
