This evidence sets out several legal consequences of current UN stabilization activities. Stabilization is an area of contemporary, cross-cutting UN activity that involves a range of UN actors such as UNDPO, UNHCR, UNICEF, UN Women, UNDP, FAO, UNFPA and more. The UK can use its existing knowledge base, found in the UK Stabilisation Unit, and its key leadership role at the UN to (re)shape UN stabilization practice towards civilian-led and bottom-up activities. By pursuing a reformulation of stabilization, the UK would be able to strengthen its position in the UN, promote the Government strategy of ‘Global Britain’, and empower local people affected by conflict to build greater multilateral cooperation in regions where the UN implements stabilization.
