Our vision

A world where people work together to resolve conflicts peacefully.

Our goals

We provide practical support to help people affected by violent conflict achieve lasting peace. We draw on our shared experiences to improve peacebuilding policies and practice worldwide.

We aim to:

  • Promote understanding of peaceful ways to resolve conflicts
  • Create opportunities for dialogue between divided communities
  • Strengthen peacebuilding policies and practice  
  • Support people to build peace

 

Lasting resolutions to conflict require far more effort than just a politician’s signature on a treaty. The peace processes that work are those that are founded on a broad spectrum of initiatives in which citizens play a full role.
