Tapping into the Power of Faith and Communities: Effective Inter-religious Action in Peacebuilding Program : Alliance for Peacebuilding. At a time when religious differences are often used to fan the flames of violence, the role of faith-based initiatives in building peace are crucial.
Inter-religious action can play an important role in developing social cohesion—a key factor in building resilient, peaceful societies. 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.

We are trained professionals who serve as neutral third party peacemakers for people with different perspectives who are connected by choice or by necessity. We work with churches and synagogues in turmoil because we value that religious organizations help people believe in a power greater than themselves, provide moral guidance, maintain cultural traditions, evoke heart-felt actions, and create a community. In addition, we believe that our unique combination of skills and experience compliment the spectrum of tools that religious leaders bring to creating a stronger religious community and to helping churches and synagogues in distress.
