Violent conflict is at a 30-year high and has sharply increased since 2010. Currently, 70.8 million people are displaced worldwide, the highest level ever recorded - surpassing post-WWII displacement. Worldwide, division, polarization, tribalism, and violent extremism are not only taking innocent lives but are also dividing communities at a time when the world needs cooperation now more than ever.
Peacebuilding is an essential tool for addressing today’s interrelated crises of violence, war and polarization. Peacebuilders are the people on the frontlines of this work every day. We are working to elevate public understanding, embrace and support for peacebuilding, while building a more formidable global social movement of peacebuilders.
