How can business contributions to peace be identified, monitored and evaluated? This resource sets out the basic parameters of a strategic and positive engagement by companies–beyond risk management, and “do no harm” – in support of peace.

The key next steps that arrive arise from the paper are:

  1. exploring and articulating a more practical understanding of business contributions to peace,
  2. developing more evidence through case studies, and
  3. sharing experiences
