Who We Are

Locally driven peacebuilding is an approach in which the people involved in, and most affected by, violent conflict work together to create and enact their own solutions to prevent, reduce, and/or transform the conflict, with the support they desire from outsiders. The Locally-led Peacebuilding Affinity Group is a collaborative network of peacebuilding professionals that convene on a recurring basis to address challenges, innovations and trends in the field of local peacebuilding.

We believe context matters, and it’s this belief that drives our work. Local solutions are fundamental to solving local problems. By engaging directly at the local level, we are putting the power back in the hands of those working on the front lines of conflict in their own local communities.
