Kroc Institute’s Peace Accords Matrix, to address the United Nations’ Security Council

The Peace Accords Matrix program, part of the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, has been invited to present to the United Nations’ Security Council at 10 a.m./ET on Friday, Oct. 20. The presentation can be watched live on the UN livestream service:

Josefina Echavarría Alvarez, director of the Peace Accords Matrix (PAM) and professor of the practice, will offer a briefing as part of an open debate, “Peace through Dialogue: the Contribution of Regional, Sub-regional and Bilateral Arrangements to the Prevention and Peaceful Resolution of Disputes.”

Debate attendees include both permanent and non-permanent members of the UN Security Council, in addition to civil society representatives such as Michelle Bachelet, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and former President of Chile. The debate is being convened by the Mission of Brazil to the UN, which occupies the Presidency of the Council in October 2023.

“An invitation to present on a world stage such as this is testament to the pivotal work of Josefina and the entire PAM team,” said Asher Kaufman, John M. Regan, Jr. director of the Kroc Institute and professor of History and Peace Studies.
