Building Peace Alliances

The Alliance for Peacebuilding leads a community of 100 organizations building peaceful and just societies around the world. In this integrated field, AfP amplifies the strengths of its members through collaboration, tackling a spectrum of issues too large for any one organization to address alone.
Based in Washington, DC, AfP serves as a backbone, innovation hub, and vocal advocate for our community.  We reach across disciplinary divides, bridging theory and practice, linking policymakers and citizens, and innovating the cutting-edge solutions necessary to meet the challenges of today’s turbulent conflict landscape.

Peacebuilding is an elastic term, encompassing a wide range of efforts by diverse actors in government and civil society at the community, national, and international levels to address the immediate impacts and root causes of conflict before, during, and after violent conflict occurs.

Peacebuilding ultimately supports human security—where people have freedom from fear, freedom from want, and freedom from humiliation.

Peacebuilding efforts aim to manage, mitigate, resolve, and transform central aspects of conflict through official diplomacy, civil society peace processes, and informal dialogues, negotiations, and mediations. Peacebuilding addresses root causes of violence and fosters reconciliation to prevent the return of instability and violence. Peacebuilding efforts seek to change beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors and to transform dynamics between individuals and groups toward a more stable, peaceful coexistence. Peacebuilding also helps create structures and institutions that provide platforms for the nonviolent resolution of conflict and stabilize fractured societies.
