THE POWER OF PEACE
The Front Line of the Future
Transformative Peace supports taking a principled and inclusive based approach to peacebuilding. Our work combines research, analysis, and field experience, and we devise strategies and conflict solutions through careful examinations of a given conflict.
We possess broad expertise within numerous issue areas,
and offer special insight on the following:
Women, Peace & Security
Study after study demonstrates that the voices of women are crucial to reducing conflict, advancing stability, and building lasting peace. When women have a seat at the peacebuilding table governmental accountability improves, and abuses against civilians decrease.
Transformative Peace works to address the structural inequalities and deteriorating security situations that effectively exclude women from civil governance. We consider increasing the effective participation of women in peacemaking and conflict prevention to be a key priority, and it is a critical component to our program design and training programs.
Intra & Interfaith Dialogue
Intra and interfaith based dialogue plays a central role in building sustainable peace. Bridging the gaps that exist between different denominations and faiths not only fosters understanding, it also creates space for negotiation, compromise, and civil recourse.
Transformative Peace is committed to mediating the difficult faith based discussions every community must undertake if they strive to end religious violence, combat extremism, and nurture peace.
Preventing All Forms of Violent Extremism
Violent extremism has no race, religion, or ethnicity. A long term solution to violent extremism hinges upon a multipronged approach that addresses all forms of extremism.
In eliminating violent extremism where it takes root, policymakers must cultivate community-based, community-led programs. Leaders need to respond to extremism in its local contexts, and resist the temptation to adopt narrow, one-size-fits-all responses that are rooted in securitization, militarization, and Islamophobia.
Transformative Peace considers engaging with those vulnerable to extremist recruitment to be vitally important. As agents of positive change, we encourage nuanced, meaningful engagement with affected communities, and help divest governments from securitization approaches to civic challenges.
Transformative Peace employs a grounded, progressive approach to conflict resolution. Our expert consultants research conflicts and generate strategies through focused analysis of history, culture, politics, faith, and our own field data.
Our aim is not to simply end fighting, but to bring disparate parties together, unclog channels of communication, and facilitate dialogue that sparks change.
Ultimately, our goal is to not only prevent future conflict, but also to open the door to post-conflict reconciliation, and eventually, begin the journey to lasting peace.
