The United States Institute for Peace has initiated a Communication for Peacebuilding (CfP) priority grant program to support innovative practice and research designed to increase our understanding of how communication flows and technology can best be leveraged to improve the practice of peacebuilding.
The CfP program is based on two premises. First, communication is fundamental to peacebuilding. Second, in conflict-affected areas, communication technologies are restructuring the relationship between international organizations, local peacebuilders, and communities in ways that allow more people to communicate, more rapidly than ever before. This has significant and perhaps transformational implications for how peacebuilding programs are implemented.
The call for proposals can be accessed here. The CfP program does not have a geographic focus, and projects in all countries and regions are eligible.
