Tapping into the Power of Faith and Communities: Effective Inter-religious Action in Peacebuilding Program : Alliance for Peacebuilding

Inter-religious action can play an important role in developing social cohesion—a key factor in building resilient, peaceful societies.[1] Open-ended dialogue over the religious divide aimed at bridging rival groups can be an effective tool for peacebuilding, and there is evidence that peace negotiations are stronger when they engage leaders from all sectors, in a robust combination of governmental and non-governmental actors. With funding from the GHR Foundation, AfP and its partners in the Peacebuilding Evaluation Consortium (PEC) – CDA Collaborative Learning, Mercy Corps, and Search for Common Ground (SFCG) – have recently begun the Effective Inter-religious Action in Peacebuilding Program (EIAP), an exciting, 3-year initiative seeking to improve the evaluation practices of inter-religious peacebuilding.

Islamic Relief found the answer to the last question to be a resounding ‘yes’.

What The Bleep Does Spirituality Have To Do With Conflict Resolution? For those of us who practice in the hardnosed world of lawyers, court systems, corporations, government entities, and the like, spirituality might seem like an odd topic.

What The Bleep Does Spirituality Have To Do With Conflict Resolution?

What does spirituality have to do with mediation or conflict resolution? What's more, spirituality can be a difficult topic to discuss. For starters, some of us are not even comfortable with the word “spirituality.” What exactly does it mean, anyway? It's difficult to define. Regardless of the definition, “spirituality” can be controversial, especially in a professional setting. Historically, spirituality has not been viewed as a relevant topic for professional dialog or learning.
