Making the Case for Peace

+PEACE Coalition

In late 2016, the heads of 13 peacebuilding organizations gathered, concerned at the shift away from peaceful approaches in a moment when more countries were experiencing violent conflict than at any time in nearly 30 years. They came away convinced to make the case for peace.

Our First Campaign

For 40 years, peacebuilding has existed as a field—but not a word in the dictionary. The Global Peacebuilding Coalition changed this situation last fall by leading a digital campaign to see “peacebuilding” added to the world’s leading dictionaries. In response, Cambridge, HarperCollins, and Macmillan publishers all agreed to add “peacebuilding” to their English-language dictionaries, with a global unveiling staged on September 21, the International Day of Peace.
