Insight on Conflict features information on peacebuilding and peacebuilding organisations around the world. Click below for introductions, resource guides and profiles of peacebuilding organisations working in a selection of different thematic areas.
Peacebuilding and conflict prevention
Conflict prevention is a diplomatic approach that refers to a variety of activities and strategies within peacebuilding fields that are deployed to pre-empt and subsequently neutralise potential triggers to widespread violent conflict.
Peacebuilding and culture / media / advocacy
In recent years, arts-based approaches to the transformation of conflict have gained increased attention and prominence, from across a range of disciplines.
Peacebuilding and DDR
DDR aims to support the voluntary disarmament and discharge of combatants from armed groups, and to assist them in starting a new life away from violence.
Peacebuilding and development
During times of armed conflict, development issues become increasingly complicated.
Peacebuilding and gender / women
The participation of women is critical to the success of any peacebuilding process – if half the population is excluded or faces discrimination, peace will be impossible to achieve
Peacebuilding and health / counselling
Both physical and mental health play an integral part in a participatory approach to long-term peacebuilding.
Peacebuilding and peace education
Peace education promotes the knowledge, skills and attitudes to help people prevent conflict occurring, resolve conflicts peacefully, or create conditions for peace.
Peacebuilding and reconciliation
In peacebuilding, reconciliation incorporates the search for truth, justice, forgiveness and accommodation between conflicting groups or people.
Peacebuilding and the environment
Competition over the environment and natural resources is frequently a contributing factor to violent conflicts.
