Featured Peacebuilding Group: Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict

This week’s Featured Peacebuilding Group is the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict, known as GPPAC. The group is a global member led network of civil society organizations who actively work on conflict prevention and peacebuilding. The network consists of fifteen regional networks of local organizations with their own priorities, character and agenda. These regional networks are represented in an International Steering Group, which jointly determines our global priorities and actions for our conflict prevention and peacebuilding work.
