The Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) serves as a thought leader, advocate and institutional home for the peacebuilding field. AfP connects more than seventy organizations, several hundred practitioners, and a network of over 15,000 people, to develop processes for change in the most complex, chaotic conflict areas around the world. Through our programs, AfP seeks to:
|Peacebuilding Systems Project AfP is developing an unprecedented systems approach to peace, using systems modeling to create more effective interventions at key leverage points; bridge all the disciplines working in areas of conflict; and create tools for measuring collective, rather than micro-level, impact. |
Peacebuilding Evaluation Project With the United States Institute of Peace (USIP), AfP is working to change the conversation on peacebuilding evaluation, bringing donors, academics and practitioners together in a wide variety of creative joint ventures to improve practice.
Peacebuilding Mapping Project AfP and the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice at USD are creating an ambitious map of the peacebuilding field, using survey data and conceptual blueprints to discover the boundaries and interactions between peacebuilding and other players in the human security space. Prevention Initiative AfP is hosting a series of working meetings between donors, policy makers, academic experts, and practitioners from the genocide prevention field and the conflict prevention field, to find ways of closing the gaps between policy advocacy for genocide prevention, and addressing root causes of violence at the local level.
Promoting Peace Policies AfP, primarily through our 3P Human Security Program, works closely with the U.S. Congress, Department of State, the US Military, and USAID to incorporate peacebuilding concepts and strategies into U.S. foreign policy and development. AfP does not promote or advocate for any specific policy, but rather seeks to build partnerships and educate policy makers about the benefits of peacebuilding.
Public Education AfP, with a contract from USIP, and in partnership with NAFSA and the Peace Alliance, is developing a Strategic Communications Campaign to change the conversation on peace and security among policy makers in Washington DC. The second phase of the program will focus on a campaign to reach a broader community of citizens outside Washington.
