“The best weapon is to sit down and talk”
– Nelson Mandela
The International Center for Dialogue and Peacebuilding focuses on conflict prevention and peacebuilding, supporting and advancing work on: early warning, disarmament; poverty; non-partisan democracy assistance; climate, water and food security; empowerment of women and girls; indigenous rights and sacred sites, and the promotion of youth led civic engagement.
The Center convenes leaders from government, international organizations, business, and civil society to dialogue and take action around drivers of and solutions to conflict—providing a space for building sustainable local, national and international peace and security. With an office in both the U.S. and Norway, the Center is working on building a physical site that would provide an optimal environment conducive to dialogue, mediation, and advanced learning.
