Battle deaths worldwide have increased by 340% over the last 10 years. Efforts to limit violent conflict are fragmented and inadequate, with insufficient hard evidence about where best to allocate resources. To reverse these negative trends, we need to create smarter, more effective, better-funded ways to reduce violent conflict and build peaceful societies. We launched the Impact:Peace Initiative in partnership with the Stanley Foundation and the +Peace Coalition to create the breakthrough we need. Impact:Peace will leverage evidence to accelerate the most important change processes in the peacebuilding field. We will work with advocates, practitioners, and policymakers to identify the policy and advocacy processes within the peacebuilding field that have the most potential for real impact on the ground. This exciting new initiative will kick off with a launch party-convening at the University of San Diego, May 20-22. Domestic Peacebuilding : Alliance for Peacebuilding.

Liberal Peacebuilding as Zombie: Workaround Strategies

It is written so as to engender (pun intended), unrest. It contains violent images. It was a Tartentino moment—-Jabri’s Lynch Lecture, delivered before a cadre of faculty, students and friends of the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution. She assembled her argument and then slashed the jugular of “liberal peacebuilding-as-enterprise,” and its lifeblood spattered across the faces of all those who believed in peacebuilding, as well as those who held it in deep suspicion.
