The publication Long Walk of Peace: Towards a Culture of Prevention has been launched by UNESCO. Part I: 'Perspectives from Peace Research' is coauthored by PRIO Global Fellow Professor Priyankar Upadhyaya and PRIO Research Professor Åshild Kolås.

How can the United Nations best address the imperatives of peace? Long Walk of Peace presents a fresh review of the conceptual and practical approaches to peace since the creation of the UN. Through an in-depth theoretical analysis, combined with a presentation of innovative practices across 32 UN bodies, it explores the long, steady haul towards peace and provides inspiration for the way forward. 

Long Walk of Peace represents the collaborative efforts of scholars, experts and UN staff from a wide range of backgrounds. Through its conceptual history and robust analysis, Long Walk of Peace shows that peace is a dynamic process and a continuous journey of discovery. Thereby, the book provides a unique understanding of the emerging priorities of ‘sustaining peace’ and promoting ‘a culture of prevention’. As such, it is an expression of UNESCO’s mandate to serve as a laboratory of ideas and thereby help advance the imperatives underscored by Agenda 2030.
