Engaging diverse local stakeholders with a community-driven peacebuilding approach
In conflict zones as well as communities with longstanding divides, the Global Peace Foundation recognizes that effective peacebuilding initiatives require the full engagement and leadership of local stakeholders. Hence, GPF works with community members, faith leaders, and local officials on community-driven peacebuilding initiatives to establish dialogue, build trust, and forge lasting relationships by affirming universally recognized principles and shared values, which are the foundation for social cohesion on all levels of society.
Strengthening our shared identities and common aspirations as members of the human family establishes a basis to resolve identity-based conflict, often based on race, ethnicity, and religion. Engaging diverse local stakeholders with a community-driven peacebuilding approach, Global Peace Foundation facilitates building understanding and reconciliation in communities disrupted by conflict and division.
