A new path to lasting peace


The Principles for Peace is a global participatory initiative to develop a new set of principles, standards and norms that will fundamentally reshape how peace processes are structured, sequenced and actualized.

Our approach leverages cutting edge research, participatory consultations and public engagement to fundamentally rethink and reframe the current narrow, exclusionary and flawed ways in which peace processes are understood. It is a highly ambitious and transformative collective endeavour that aims to bridge the gap between policy and action, anchored in a bottom-up process to amplify the voices of those whose destiny and lives are shaped by conflict and peace processes.

2 billion people’s lives are shaped by conflict and insecurity.  

Yet, we apply the same solutions and expect different results. 

Almost half of all conflicts in the last 30 years have recurred.

The nature of conflict has changed, yet our approach to peace has not.  

1 in every 4 young people are affected by armed conflict.

Women and other relevant actors are often excluded from peace processes.

Three Objectives
Building Blocks
International Commission

The independent International Commission on Inclusive Peace consists of a diverse group of eminent experts and leaders, bringing together policy, practice, on-the-ground experiences and high-level political leadership.

The Commission is kickstarting the global participatory process to reframe thinking on the global peace agenda. A key work of the Commission is to amplify local voices, lived experiences and aspirations by anchoring the Initiative In both realpolitik and real society. It aims to collaboratively develop new principles, moral guidelines, norms and standards to generate momentum that seeks to transform incentives in order to achieve inclusive and sustainable peace.

A Collective Effort

The Stakeholder Platform brings together representatives of local, regional and international organizations, research institutes, governments, private sector entities and other relevant networks.

The Stakeholder Platform will accompany the International Commission on Inclusive Peace (ICIP) throughout its mandate and the development of the Principles for Peace. It will provide the ICIP with a sounding board, a vehicle for deeper outreach and advocacy.
