FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum

The FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum is a series of events on current and overarching challenges and trends in peacebuilding. With the Peacebuilding Forum, we want to provide future-oriented impulses for the development of peacebuilding and strengthen the visibility and importance of the policy field in its entirety.

The participants of the forum can exchange ideas, discuss overarching questions and seek for common solutions. The aim is to build bridges between state and civil society actors, between local and global perspectives and also between science and practice.

PBF Voices Blog

On our PBF Voices Blog we accompany the FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum with a blog to provide a space for conference speakers, participants and other interested persons to share ideas and insights on the future of peacebuilding policy and practice.

In the run-up to this year's FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum, we asked international partners of FriEnt’s member organisations to formulate their expectations on the German commitment to peacebuilding and crisis prevention. The articles will be gradually published in the "PBF Voices Blog"! You are cordially invited to discuss with us and make your comments on the blog!
