A Civil Society Consortium Effort


The Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) program on human security works to achieve a people-centered security strategy, which is a more successful, cost-effective, and sustainable national security strategy than traditional approaches. The program opens channels of communication between the Pentagon and local civil society organizations (CSOs) working to build human security from the ground up through conflict prevention and peacebuilding. Lisa Schirch, Director of Human Security, and Col (ret) Chris Holshek, Senior Civil-Military Advisor at AfP are the lead staff and contacts for the Civil Society and Security Sector Engagement for Human Security Project.


The University of Notre Dame's Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies is one of the world's leading centers for the study of the causes of violent conflict and strategies for sustainable peace. Kroc Institute faculty and fellows conduct interdisciplinary research on a wide range of topics related to peace and justice.


The Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC) is building a new international consensus and enabling joint action to prevent violent conflict and promote peacebuilding, based on regional and global action agendas. GPPAC is a global network of civil society organisations committed to act to prevent the escalation of conflict into violence, at national, regional and global levels. It aims to build a multi-stakeholder partnership including civil society, governments, regional organisations and the UN.
