About the product
The purpose of this report is two-fold. First, the report seeks to demonstrate how effective economic governance provides a critical fundation for peace and state effectiveness. Second, the report proposes how existing United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) programmes, projects and priorities can contribute to the work of the newly formed United Nations Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) as well as to wider peacebuilding efforts. The report overall seeks to place economic governance at the heart of peacebuilding.
