AfP 2014 Annual Conference May 21-23!

Register Today for the AfP 2014 Annual Conference!

The theme of this year’s conference is Exploring New Frontiers in Peacebuilding. The first day of the conference is co-sponsored by United States Institute of Peace and will take place at their beautiful headquarters. Over the course of three days, the conference will explore emerging trends in peacebuilding, including cross-border and urban criminal violence, the future of peacekeeping, the technology revolution and its impact on our field, and the effective use of storytelling in peacebuilding. The conference will host a range of exciting speakers and panelists who are dealing with some of the most difficult challenges – and exploring some of the most creative new solutions – to peacebuilding today, including Asi Burak, President of Games for Change; Russell Feingold, Special Envoy to the Great Lakes and the Democratic Republic of Congo; and David Loew, Executive Vice President and Executive Creative Director, Leo Burnett. The conference will also feature a lunch time discussion with John Marks and Susan Collin Marks, the Founder and Vice President of Search for Common Ground.

We are also dedicating portions of the agenda for open space in which participants can speak about interesting projects and developments, and we will hold a “Peacebuilding Marketplace” for participants to display their work.

This event will be webcast live beginning at 9:00am ET on May 21, 2014 at You can also participate in the conversation on Twitter with #AfP2014.

We also try to offer discounted rates for students of our member organizations.
