Alliance for Peacebuilding Launches Domestic Peacebuilding Resources Page

The Alliance for Peacebuilding recently launched a website dedicated to domestic (U.S. based) peacebuilding.  This is a great resource for both practitioners as well as educators.

Here is the note from AfP on the effort with the link to the page:

AfP is excited to announce the launch of a new section of our webpage dedicated to domestic peacebuilding issues and practices. We have carefully curated a selection of articles, podcasts, films and other media which address topics relevant to peacebuilding activities and related topics in the United States. Thematic areas range from national institutional weakness to local-level peace initiatives. You can also find AfP and Peace Direct’s interactive map of U.S. peacebuilding programs and organizations on this page.

This page will serve as a hub for resources on understanding conflict dynamics in the United States as well as current domestic peacebuilding efforts, much like our CVE Digest does for the topic of Countering Violent Extremism.

AfP’s venture into domestic peacebuilding topics is extremely timely. Today, America faces not only a crisis of democracy and political divisions but also the continuation of racial, ethnic and class tensions that threaten peace and stability. Peacebuilding and conflict prevention programs in the United States are needed now more than ever.

We hope you find the collection both thought-provoking and informative. You are welcome to send submissions of additional resources to We also encourage you to register and/or submit a proposal for PeaceCon 2018, where Domestic Peacebuilding will be a key topic on Days 2 and 3.
