The FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum (FriEnt PBF) is an international platform for cross-actor dialogue on current developments, issues and challenges in the policy field of peacebuilding. The focus is on topics that are both politically and practically relevant. The conference aims to provide impetus for the development and visibility of the policy field and to strengthen global dialogue and strategic partnerships.
Every two years, the FriEnt PBF provides an opportunity for German and international state and civil society actors in peacebuilding to meet with others and discuss challenges, emerging trends and pressing issues in the field. The aim of the conference is to build bridges between state and civil society actors, between local and global perspectives on existing approaches and partnerships, and between science and practice.
Each FriEnt PBF has a specific theme. This years's FriEnt PBF 2021 entitled “Translate – Relate – Act: Forging Partnerships for Sustainable Peace” will highlight new ways of bringing partnerships into action, translating existing realities into policies and meaningful action, and expanding partnerships with related sectors and policy areas.
