Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 10.48.02 AMAfP has begun an affinity group on neuroscience and peacebuilding, following the conference that AfP co-sponsored earlier this year with Beyond Conflict and the El Hibri Foundation.  We have received a grant from USIP to study the intersection between peacebuilding, neuroscience and spirituality, with a focus on understanding the “brain on conflict,” and trauma healing at the personal and community level.

Goal 16AfP will continue its work on linking civil society to policymakers in fragile states, with an emphasis on connecting the local, national and global levels of peacebuilding and development, and developing metrics around the implementation of Goal 16 – Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies.  We are also exploring new definitions of fragility and resilience through our Conflict and Fragility Working Group.
