The site is primarily geared to serve UN peacemakers and their staff as they prepare for negotiations to achieve peace agreements that will provide a basis for sustainable peace. The site is also intended to be useful to UN partners actively engaged in peacemaking efforts around the world, including Member States, regional organisations, civil society and nongovernmental organisations.

Content of the website includes peace agreements, selected literature, and an extensive legal library containing the legal framework that guides the UN?s efforts in peacemaking, as well as links to research centres and other useful resources. In addition, the site offers easy access to peacemaking knowledge by providing lessons, case briefs, and comments on peace agreements and on the management of peace processes derived from the United Nations\‘ extensive experience in peacemaking.
