World Day of Peace, 21 September

Where the hell is the last one? In the immediate aftermath of the Cold War, when Groupe URD was founded 25 years ago, everyone hoped that peace would prevail and the world would calm down. But the wars in the Balkans, Somalia and Rwanda quickly reminded us of how difficult it was to build the latter. The diagnosis of then "war sick societies" still holds. But the wounds are getting deeper and peace is still an uncertain battle: Syria, Yemen, South Sudan, how many more tragedies, while the United Nations’ room for manoeuvre is being reduced because of the blockages in the Security Council and IHL is still so little respected.

In its commitment to advancing the processes that drive and consolidate the dynamics of emerging from the crisis, Groupe URD remains mobilised 25 years after its creation, as shown by our commitment to the production process of the French Strategy "Building sustainable peace and combating fragility".
