Join and create
your own PEACE community
This new community on the Peace Portal is dedicated to tools and case studies compiled by GPPAC Members and designed to support civil society organisations to carry out conflict analysis and to mobilise different groups and agencies for conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
The 2016 Global Peace Index (GPI) shows the world became less peaceful in the last year, reinforcing the underlying trend of declining peace over the last decade. Results also show a growing global inequality in peace, with the most peaceful countries continuing to improve while the least peaceful are falling into greater violence and conflict.
The 2016 GPI report provides a comprehensive update on the state of peace. It shows that amidst the global deterioration the world continues to spend enormous resources on creating and containing violence but very little on peace.
Action on Societal Violence- KAFA was established as nonprofit in 2012 in response to increasing tendencies towards violence in Jordan. KAFA works towards a society where men and women, young and old do not "look back in anger or forward in fear", but around in security; where conflict is resolved peacefully and no guns are raised. KAFA's mission is to reduce societal violence by bringing the issue into the spotlight, encouraging democratic values, conflict prevention and transformation, dialogue and mediation and promoting non-violent means of resolution.
The Hague Academy for Local Governance organises a training on conflict, rule of law and local security from 7 to 18 November 2016 in The Hague.
Key issues that will be addressed are: How can governments promote citizen security and protect human rights after violent conflict? What policies and instruments do they have to foster reconsiliation and peacebuilding amongst different ethnic or religious groups? And what attitude and skills do government officials need to lead conflict transformation processes?
Interested candidates can apply until 23 September 2016
