Call for Submissions: Peacebuilding Approaches Catalogue
an article by Sarah Maitland

Want to publish your approaches and turn the world's attention to what you're doing for peace?

Global Peacebuilders is publishing a catalogue of worldwide approaches to peacebuilding, and we are looking for effective, fresh and innovative approaches from organisations working to create the conditions for a sustainable peace in their area.

The Global Peacebuilders Peacebuilding Approaches Catalogue will be a full-colour glossy publication offering an insight into the range of approaches and projects currently utilised across the world in areas affected by a variety of conflicts. We will translate every approach published within the catalogue into Arabic, English, French, Portuguese and Spanish, and circulate the completed publication to high-level recipients worldwide.

Send us your submissions for the catalogue now, and in return, we offer you a unique opportunity to promote your peacebuilding activity on an international scale, raise awareness of the learning and expertise you have to share, and help shape a publication that will become a valuable educational resource for the worldwide peacebuilding community.

The catalogue will publish 20 snapshot approaches to peacebuilding from across the world, and will give an illustration rather than a full explanation of each approach. This encourages readers to contact the peacebuilders behind the approaches in order to gain further details, and maximises your potential for increased attention to the work you are doing for peace.

How to I publish my approach?

Submitting your approaches to Global Peacebuilders for potential publication in the catalogue is fast and easy. You do not have to write new material, or prepare a lengthy report of your work - simply request a short submission form by emailing

Every approach submitted will be assessed by a Selection Panel of experts from the fields of peacebuilding, conflict resolution and peace research in Northern Ireland, and 20 final approaches will be selected for publication in the catalogue in January 2008. This promotes the peace keys of respect reject listen

Press Release from Global Peacebuilders

Building community capacity for peacebuilding worldwide

The Global Peacebuilders project managed by Springboard Opportunities Limited is going live soon. Comprising an innovative online information-sharing portal, unique best practice catalogue and an international conference located in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the Global Peacebuilders project will connect researchers, academics, practitioners and organisations working on peace and reconciliation, conflict resolution and peacebuilding worldwide, and will provide a platform for disseminating achievements and building capacity for the future.

While every conflict across the world is distinct, the underlying causes are often similar, and there is much to be gained by building bridges between practitioners and sharing in the positive work and successes that have taken place. Not only within the context of the island of Ireland, but also beyond, there is a need for a positive place in which all conflict resolution and peacebuilding organisations can come together, share strategy, build momentum and increase their capacity for transforming conflict and creating the conditions for sustainable peace.

The Global Peacebuilders project will help build such a platform for disseminating achievements and sharing strategies for the future. Specifically, a fully-searchable 5-language online database of individuals and organisations working in conflict resolution and peacebuilding will be developed. The database will bring together organisations from across the global north and south, and, stemming from this, a comprehensive catalogue of best practice examples in conflict resolution and peacebuilding from around the world will be produced.

By building new relationships and spanning continental divides, the project will enable organisations to ‘broaden their horizons’, offering inspiration and strategic direction, and affording them a portal through which to share and incorporate innovation and best practice. . ...more.
