The Peace Portal promotes non-violent and peaceful solutions by being impartial, open, accessible, respectful, trustworthy, transparent and supporting freedom of expression.
Although there is extensive information in the field of conflict prevention and peace building, the Peace Portal accumulates, integrates and analyses this information from diverse sources in one place and makes it available to an audience of varying interests and expertise. The additional value of this information is that comes from civil society and grass root organisations from conflict areas, who are often an ignored source of information. With this information, the Portal intends leading to action aimed at preventing conflict and building peace.
The information on the Portal is aggregated and verified in an open platform, belonging to all participating organisations and individuals. The interactive features of the Portal support communication and collaboration within and across organisations as well as individuals. The Peace Portal facilitates civil society cooperation online: allowing users to interact, discuss, build networks and start communities on issues of specific interest. The users also have the opportunity to publish material and reports, contributing to conflict prevention and peace building knowledge base.
