Since the early 1990s a growing emphasis on peacebuilding has marked the international community's responses to conflicts. Supporters of peacebuilding have promoted it as a new international idea, usually tracing it back to then United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali's An Agenda for Peace in 1992 in which he proposes responsibilities and responses for the UN and the international community. Peacebuilding is expressed in different forms - a set of policies, a humanitarian agenda, or a way of conflict resolution - but all involve the idea of efforts made to prevent a relapse into conflict.
