The United Nations Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) is an advisory body to both the United Nations General Assembly and the United Nations Security Council. It was jointly established in 2005 with a vision of supporting the post-conflict peace efforts and peacebuilding in certain countries or regions. The Commission plays a key role in sustaining peace around the globe with various missions and offices that focus on different issues in countries. PBC has been supporting the missions of the Security Council with Integrated Peacebuilding Support Offices established in countries that have been affected by conflicts or any other situation that disrupt peace within their borders. The Commission also makes public releases, statements, and provide annual and occasional reports if asked to advise by either the Security Council or the General Assembly.
PBC is composed of 31 Member States that serve for renewable terms of two years and that are elected from different UN bodies with certain criteria. Furthermore, the Commission can also invite relevant Non-Member States in order to tackle the problems of specific regions. The following entities can participate in all meetings of the Commission: European Union, International Monetary Fund, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, and World Bank. The Commission is supported by the United Nations Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO), which focuses on assisting the Commission and managing, on behalf of the Secretary-General, the United Nations Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) which meets the financial needs of the Commission.
