Alliance for Peacebuilding

The Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) is the institutional home for the peacebuilding community – a network of over 100 organizations working to resolve conflict and create sustainable peace in 153 countries. Their members include some of the world’s largest development organizations, most innovative academic institutions, and the most powerful peacebuilding groups – and their partners span a range of sectors, including environment, education, unarmed citizen protection, business, media, the arts, and more – all working toward the shared goal of peace. AfP amplifies the voices of peacebuilders worldwide, tackling issues too large for any one organization to address alone. Vision Their vision is to advance sustainable peace and security worldwide. They believe in a systems approach to peacebuilding that recognizes the complexity of modern conflict, and which connects the multiple sectors working for peace—making strong linkages between the local, national, regional, and global levels to create a stronger scaffolding for peace. History Since its incorporation in 2003, the Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) has grown from a small cluster of conflict resolution practitioners to a rich and diverse network of over 15,000 individuals and organizations that are active in more than 153 countries. Founded in 1999 as the Applied Conflict Resolution Organization Network (ACRON), AfP began with the goal of supporting collaboration in the conflict resolution field, which was fragmented at the time. With a $1 million planning grant from the Hewlett Foundation in 2003, ACRON became the Alliance for International Conflict Prevention and Resolution (AICPR) with a broader mandate and a stronger emphasis on conflict prevention. In 2006, the organization became the Alliance for Peacebuilding, adopting a more ambitious mission and further emphasizing collaborative action.
