During Geneva Peace week, we will organise two seminars. One will focus on: on the role of regional inter-governmental organisations in peace building and conflict prevention (on Tuesday November 6th). The session aims to bring together examples from around the world to bridge the policy gap between various stakeholders, primarily global institutions and regional inter-governmental organisations and local civil society organisations. The second session will focus on assessing the implementation of peacebuilding, prevention and sustaining peace in practice: Reflections from Liberia.Read more
There's excitement in the soundwaves at GPPAC, as we launched our first-ever podcast series, The Peace Corner. The intern-driven initiative started as a conversation at lunch. We, the interns, enjoyed discussing what we would ask the peacebuilders who constitute the GPPAC global network should the opportunity arise. And so, The Peace Corner was born.
With each pod, we will be talking to a different peacebuilder, working in a different region, telling a different story. By offering unique perspectives on a spectrum of issues, The Peace Corner hopes to engage, challenge, and open your ears to the many courageous voices making peace possible.Read more
Our 2017 Annual Report is now online!

The highlights include our work in Colombia, where we worked on an intergenerational dialogue for peace, Northeast Asia, where we facilitate a civil society dialogue for peace and stability, and our continued work on peace education.Read more

In this animation we explain what conflict prevention is, why it is important and what GPPAC is doing for sustainable peace worldwide.Read more
