Our peacebuilding approach centers on “positive peace,” which is not just the absence of direct violence but also the unequal systems and harmful social norms that legitimize it. In our peacebuilding work with civil society, social movements, and governments, we play the role of integrator, helping build relationships and link different actors at the local, national, and international levels to work toward common goals. Rather than having a set end in mind, we believe the work of peacebuilding is ongoing – a continuous approach to solving problems holistically by including diverse actors and perspectives.
