The Humanitarian-Development-Peace nexus aims to bring three sectors into closer alignment to better address both the immediate needs of people affected by conflict as well as the underlying causes of protracted crises. While the idea of the nexus is gaining wider attraction and buy-in within the international aid system, there remain outstanding and contentious questions. Little consensus has also emerged around what the ‘Peace’ part in the nexus means and how contributing to peace might look like in practice. This short animated video aims to clarify some of the key concepts and to reflect upon some of the key challenges. It illustrates how more coherent and aligned actions can be developed towards the shared overarching goal of supporting self-reliant, resilient, and peaceful societies.
About the Migration Network Hub
What is the Migration Network Hub?
The Hub is a virtual “meeting space” where governments, stakeholders and experts can access and share migration-related information and services. It provides curated content, analysis and information on a variety of topics.
The Hub aims to support UN Member States in the implementation, follow-up and review of the Global Compact for Migration by serving as a repository of existing evidence, practices and initiatives, and facilitating access to knowledge sharing via online discussions, an expert database and demand-driven, tailor-made solutions (launching in 2021).
What content is displayed in the Hub?
The Hub aims to help you find information on migration, ranging from policy briefs and journal articles, existing portals and platforms and what they offer, to infographics and videos. The different types of resources submitted by users undergo peer review by a panel of experts from within the UN and beyond, before being approved for inclusion in the Hub. To provide guidance to users based on findings of the needs assessment, the content is ordered so that more comprehensive and global resources are shown before more specific and regional ones. Know a great resource? Please submit using the links above and your suggestion will be reviewed. Please see the draft criteria for existing practices here.
