                                UCLG PEACE PRIZE AWARD

The consequences of any violent conflict often manifest themselves on a local scale, which is why a local-level approach is vital. Local Governments have an important role to play in situations of conflict as promoters and facilitators of peace, freedom, democracy, and prosperity and by doing so they contribute to the international development and peace-building agenda. Therefore, local governments are instrumental in preventing conflicts, building bridges and dialogue after conflict and promoting a peaceful environment.

At the World Conference on City Diplomacy, organized by United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and the Association of Netherlands Municipalities (VNG) in 2008, The Hague Agenda on City Diplomacy was adopted. This agenda aims to highlight the role of local governments in promoting peace, dialogue, and reconstruction throughout the world. The Hague Agenda on City Diplomacy proposed to launch a peace prize for local governments, to be awarded to local governments who either work to prevent or overcome conflicts in their community, or who have helped other local governments in conflict areas in their striving for peace or justice. This has taken shape in the UCLG Peace Prize. This award celebrates successful initiatives for conflict prevention, peace-building and post-conflict reconstruction undertaken by local governments and stimulates others to follow suit.

The UCLG Peace Prize generates international public attention for the role local governments play in ensuring sustainable and peaceful development. Local governments that have implemented an innovative and high impact approach towards peace-building and the creation of dialogue are eligible for nomination.
