Understanding the Conversation About Peacebuilding: An Analysis of Organizational Communications

Understanding the Conversation About Peacebuilding: An Analysis of Organizational Communications reviews how the peacebuilding field is currently “framing” peacebuilding in the US and provides initial recommendations on how we can communicate about peace more effectively

Recommendations include:

  1. Explain what peacebuilding involves in clear and accessible terms
  2. Always make the case for peacebuilding, not just against military action
  3. Tell a consistent story about why peacebuilding matters.

This research, conducted by Frameworks Institute in partnership with the Alliance for Peacebuilding and PartnersGlobal is part of PartnersGlobal’s Narratives For Peace initiative. Funded by Humanity United and Open Society Foundations, the research initiative aims to better understand common narratives around peace and peacebuilding used by the public and the peacebuilding field in order to identify gaps between the two. Ultimately, the initiative seeks to find ways to better communicate to the American public what peacebuilding is and why it matters and to increase support for international peacebuilding efforts.
