We have in recent years seen a shift in the international discourse on violence and prevention. Leading stakeholders now stress the interlinkages between humanitarian, development, and peace interventions – the so-called Triple Nexus approach. Demonstrated in the UN’s “New Way of Working (NWoW)”, actors from all three fields are expected to work together towards collective outcomes. The place of fundamental Human Rights within this Nexus, however, is contested. Some also suggest that discussions on policy formation and the implementation of the Triple Nexus lack sufficient engagement with civil society.

A key question is whether the Nexus takes the Human Rights framework into consideration, resulting in a lack of accountability and coherence, unequal power relations, and exclusion of key groups. Is there a need for a fourth dimension of the Nexus, proclaiming Human Rights for all? If so, how can Sweden advocate for stronger integration of Human Rights approaches in the context of the upcoming Swedish EU presidency in 2023?
