Implementing local peace networks to reduce urban insecurity

This report, “Implementing local peace networks in urban spaces: Lessons learned,” gathers observations and recommendations from participants in Developing Conflict Analysis Tools for the Local Peace Networks,” a Dialogue and Exchange program hosted by AFSC in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in September 2012.

The conference brought together representatives of several nonprofits in Haiti and Guatemala, who had previously drawn on local peace networks to reduce urban insecurity in their respective communities.

Local peace networks are groups that work toward resolving community disputes, particularly in areas experiencing high levels of violence and social exclusion. Their underlying objective is to transform the conflict’s roots and build local capacities for peace.

The report is available as a PDF in English, French, and Spanish.
