Community-based peacebuilding of civil society in peace processes forms a basis for our programmes. Research also plays an essential role in the nonviolent conflict transformation approach, both as a precondition for understanding the context of engagement and as a means for conflict transformation. While LPI’s partners include a large variety of civil society organisations, depending on the context of engagement in the different country programmes, the Institute puts special emphasis on engaging in work or dialogue with faith-based organisations.

“Conflict transformation is to envision and respond to the ebb and flow of social conflict as life-giving opportunities for creating constructive change processes that reduce violence, increase justice in direct interaction and social structures, and respond to real-life problems in human relationships.”

John Paul Lederach – Professor of International Peacebuilding, and a member of LPI’s International Advisory Council.
