The nature of violence has changed in recent years. Battlefield wars have given way to more widespread and inter-connected forms of violence affecting civilian populations. Organized criminal activity crosses borders and undermines legitimate activities. Both internal and external factors drive violent conflict. What can the international community do differently to prevent violence and lay the foundations for ongoing peace? This webinar summarizes a recently updated World Bank e-learning course that explores modern forms of violence and helps develop capacity to confront it.

Ms. Friday designed the 2011E-Learning Course on Violence, Conflict and Fragility and most recently updated its content for the 2014 version. The four-module course, based on the 2011 World Development Report, explores modern forms of violence, causes, and impacts; describes the building blocks for peace, and recommends new approaches for working in fragile situations and is the subject of today’s discussion.
