About Nonviolent Peaceforce
As an unarmed, paid civilian peacekeeping force, Nonviolent Peaceforce fosters dialogue among parties in conflict and provides a protective presence for threatened civilians.
With the headquarters in Brussels, NP peacekeeping teams are presently deployed in the Philippines, in South Sudan, in Myanmar and the South Caucasus. Our peacekeepers include veterans of conflict zones, experienced peacekeepers, and those new to the field with the right combination of experience, skills, aptitude and attitude. Nonviolent Peaceforce USA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Within every combat zone we enter, and throughout our work worldwide, we want to achieve four overarching goals:
To create a space for fostering lasting peace.
To protect civilians, especially those made vulnerable because of the conflict.
To develop and promote the theory and practice of unarmed civilian peacekeeping so that it may be adopted as a policy option by decision makers and public institutions.
To build the pool of professionals able to join peace teams through regional activities, training, and maintaining a roster of trained, available people.
