Countries at risk of instability and civil war need mechanisms and structures for cooperation amongst all relevant stakeholders in peacebuilding. National or local peace structures create a forum for all actors and stakeholders for dialogue, consultation, cooperation and coordination.
Infrastructures for peace is a collective term for the various mechanisms, resources, values, skills and interdependent structures which contribute to conflict prevention and peace-building in a society. For example, this may include dedicated resources (mandates, budget lines) allocated by local authorities/government, legal or policy frameworks, institutional networks, educational policies, national or local peace committees.

This website gathers resources, case studies and news on the topic of Infrastructures for Peace, to provide a knowledge hub that can give continuation to the groundwork done by the International Civil Society Network for Infrastructures for Peace. It is supported by the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC).
