Narratives for Peace: How we think and communicate around peacebuilding

As a part of our broader Narratives for Peace initiative, PartnersGlobal, together with the Alliance for Peacebuilding, has been investing in bridging narrative theory and practice to make “peacebuilding” a more salient policy priority for the broader public. With support from Humanity United and the Open Society Foundations, we are working closely with Frameworks Institute on a social science research project to uncover effective narrative frames for peacebuilding in US foreign policy.

The research surfaces the common frames and narratives used by the peacebuilding field on the one hand and the ways the public perceives peace on the other. The research also offers recommendations on how peacebuilding experts can more effectively communicate and better frame their messaging to resonate with the American public and increase support for peacebuilding.
