Chamber and committees

Question reference: S6W-11285

  • Asked by: Sharon Dowey, MSP for South Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
  • Date lodged: 4 October 2022
  • Current status: Answered by Keith Brown on 25 October 2022


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-08830 by Keith Brown on 8 June 2022, whether it will provide an update on its plans to create a Peace Institute by 2022, and what the (a) location, (b) cost and (c) remit of this body will be.


It is important that we build on our existing peace work and increase our knowledge and experience to strengthen Scotland’s peace offer. That is why we are actively considering options from the expert research we commissioned. The Scottish Government is committed to Scotland being an active and responsible global citizen and our priority now is to ensure that our future peace offer is an appropriate and responsible contribution to the existing activity underway in Scotland and internationally. I look forward to updating Parliament with our plans in due course.
