PeaceNexus Foundation

PeaceNexus intends to integrate stakeholders and relevant actors, who bring a broad range of tools to bear, across multiple fields, to assist in the development and implementation of comprehensive and durable solutions to conflict. The foundation will meet these objectives through multiple avenues:

  1. Acting as a catalyst and facilitator by mobilizing credible and experienced local, national and international peacebuilding actors, and bringing them together to develop inclusive and networked peacebuilding strategies;
  2. Becoming a nexus of credible resources and know-how for peacebuilding;
  3. Providing advice and oversight for assessments and new programs that require multiple inputs and actors to ensure coordinated strategies for policy and implementation;
  4. Becoming an international knowledge-base of best-practice in peace-building;
  5. Investing in building local expertise.

To reach the purpose of making peacebuilding more effective, PeaceNexus links actors and perspectives across the fields in projects. PeaceNexus seeks to promote integrated solutions to peacebuilding challenges with emphasis on the interfaces between development, democracy and security, by providing multi-disciplinary expert teams to peacebuilding actors. PeaceNexus provides expert consultants to meet the expressed peacebuilding needs of our clients.
