The round table is within the context of the UNESCO Program of Action for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence and the International Decade for Rapprochement of Cultures (2013-2022) for which UNESCO is responsible in the UN system.

It will open a debate on how to put into action the right of peoples to peace, echoing the theme chosen this year by the United Nations for the International Day of Peace. Accent will be put on the role and actions of the civil society to build the base for a universal peace.

The round table will be followed by projection of the film, "Words of the Marionnettes" by Claude Yvans.
