The strenght of the Principles for Peace
The strength of the Principles for Peace (P4P) Foundation stems from our dynamic approach and our extensive global coalition, weaving together different realms—from diplomacy and development to politics and security. Our vast network, comprising over 120 organisations, positions us at the pivotal juncture of theory and practice. As the crucial link connecting high-level diplomacy with grassroots movements, we blend robust academic insights with hands-on field expertise.
Our alliance is brought together in the Stakeholder Platform, which played a foundational role in the development of the Peacemaking Covenant and the Principles for Peace, informing both their process and their outputs, amplifying diverse voices and views, and serving as a sounding board for the P4P Secretariat and International Commission on Inclusive Peace. The Platform is composed of a broad network of key stakeholders—from local, regional, international organisations and networks, research institutes, think tanks, academia, and UN agencies—who will continue to be instrumental to foster collaborative action and to guide the Foundation’s organisational strategy, approaches, and workplan.
The Platform catalyses joint action using the Principles for Peace as a framework of reference to:
- Inspire policy shifts for positive peacemaking outcomes, bringing together a collective evidence base and a unity of views from a broad and diverse stakeholder base to inform policy and advocacy agendas.
- Implement initiatives and activities that integrate the Principles into peacemaking policy and practice, working with frontline constituencies, including governments, mediators, armed forces, and local civil society organisations.
- Support efforts to enhance the effectiveness, sustainability, and accountability of peace engagements, by tracking and monitoring the quality and the trajectory of peace processes and influencing decision-making.
