The Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) is a global membership association of more than seventy peacebuilding organizations, 1,000 professionals, and a network of more than 15,000 people developing processes for change in the most complex, chaotic conflict environments around the world.
AfP amplifies the strengths of its members and works collaboratively on issues that are too large for any one organization to tackle by itself.
AfP engages a multitude of actors, including government, academia, and nongovernmental organizations.
AfP is a leader in developing and disseminating innovative approaches to peacebuilding and links related fields including development, relief, human rights, democracy, security sector reform, and others. AfP connects its members and civil society actors from around the world with US policymakers and with broad international policy initiatives. Through AfP’s Annual Conferences, members and the general public share information and ideas and learn from each other’s experiences.
Through its initiatives, AfP aims to:
Innovate: AfP is committed to evaluation and learning and serves as a bridge between academics and implementers, linking theory and practice.
Influence: AfP works closely with local civil society organizations to provide crucial advice to policymakers in Congress, the US State Department, the US Agency for International Development (USAID), and the military.
Connect: AfP facilitates collaboration among peacebuilding practitioners and thought-leaders to enhance knowledge and skills and generate new strategies.
