The Alliance for Peacebuilding Annual Conference May 21 program was held at the U.S. Institute of Peace. From the USIP webpage:

The Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) is a global membership association of nearly 80 peacebuilding organizations, 1,000 professionals and a network of more than 15,000 people developing processes for change in the most complex, chaotic conflict environments around the world. The annual conference brings together AfP members and individuals from the broader peacebuilding community to discuss pressing issues in the field and develop collaborative initiatives.

Participants explored emerging trends and new frontiers in peacebuilding, including cross-border criminal violence, new approaches to complex conflict environments, the technology revolution and its impact on our field, and the effective use of storytelling in peacebuilding. The most up-to-date agenda details the wide range of speakers that discussed these topics.
