The Initiative for Peacebuilding (IfP) draws together the complementary geographic and thematic expertise of 10 civil society organisations (and their networks) with offices across the EU and in conflict-affected countries. IfP partners have joined together to develop and promote international knowledge and expertise in the field of conflict prevention and peacebuilding. IfP is a thematic project, exploring a number of cross-cutting issues in specific regions across four continents; emphasizing the inclusion of those affected by conflict in influencing national and international policy debates and ensuring a stronger link between policy and practice.
The themes are: 1) Mediation; 2) Regional cooperation on environment, economy and natural resources; 3) Security; 4) Democratisation and transitional justice; 5) Gender; and 6) Capacity building and training.
www.initiativeforpeacebuilding.eu is a online resource for knowledge and expertise on conflict prevention and peacebuilding, particularly as it relates to EU policy. The site will evolve and grow for practitioners and policy-makers alike.
