We work with communities to prevent or reduce violence that has been triggered by radical and divisive change. We aim to mitigate the effects of violence on people’s lives, while laying the foundations for long-term peace and stability.
Having being instrumental in founding and establishing the Peaceful Change initiative, David Wood has decided that it is time for him to pursue new peacebuilding challenges outside of PCi. David has been at the forefront of providing critical support to peace efforts in Libya and Syria since PCi’s inception in 2012. He has shaped the development of good practice in community-based approaches to security, conflict analysis and sensitivity, social peace and cohesion, and transformational leadership. David’s vision, leadership and tireless efforts have been instrumental in driving PCi forwards as an organisation. The whole PCi team wishes David well in his continued peacebuilding endeavours.
Our Syrian Peace Resources Network has been working to bring together local community leaders in order to empower them to play a more active role in resolving conflicts. The result has been the establishment of community committees that promote dialogue as a method to resolve local problems. The committees support the peaceful management of conflicts by mediating peaceful solutions to disputes, increasing human security through service delivery, and stopping the spread of violence.
