A new path to lasting peace


The Principles for Peace (P4P) 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.

An international high-level Commission will lead a global, inclusive, bottom-up and top-down process to develop principles for the processes around achieving lasting peace. The approach will anchor the initiative in both realpolitik and real society and contribute to bridging the gap between peace processes and local needs and aspirations. It will leverage cutting edge research, participatory consultations and public engagement to fundamentally re-think and re-shape peace processes worldwide.

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 will kickstart the global, participatory process to reframe thinking on the global peace agenda. An integral pillar of this initiative, and key to the work of the Commission, is the amplification of the voices of those whose destiny and lives are shaped by conflict. The Commission’s work will be anchored in a bottom-up process that engages people with lived experiences of conflict and peace processes.

A Collective Effort

The Stakeholder Platform is a multi-stakeholder engagement forum that consists of a wide network of key stakeholders from research institutes, governments, private sector entities, local, regional and international organizations and their networks.

The platform will enable mass engagement through global outreach, online citizen engagement as well as country and locally specific campaigns and consultations to amplify local voices, lived experiences and aspirations for inclusive and lasting peace.
