To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the potential (1) of creating new, and (2) of improving current, channels for détente and dialogue to prevent violent conflict and foster harmonious development globally.
Dialogue is an essential part of efforts to prevent violent conflict. We continue to prioritise preventive diplomacy and mediation through the UN and push for greater collaboration on peacebuilding amongst international organisations. The evidence is also clear that women's meaningful participation in conflict prevention through to conflict resolution is key to securing sustainable peace. In the 20th anniversary year of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, we are prioritising promoting women's meaningful inclusion in peace processes; and increasing support and protection for women resolving conflict, countering violent extremism and building peace at the grassroots level.
