WORK WITH US

Our work saves lives.

Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP) is an international NGO operating in the field of unarmed civilian protection. Our programs in the Philippines, Myanmar, South Sudan, and the Middle East serve vulnerable and conflict-affected populations by working to reduce violence, protect human rights defenders, create safe spaces for dialogue, and facilitate conflict-sensitive returns of displaced persons. Internationally, NP raises awareness at the EU and UN level on the productive role and impact nonviolent international presence can make in areas of conflict and builds rosters of potential protection officers through trainings.

We are regularly looking for new motivated associates to join our team. Learn more about how you can be part of Nonviolent Peaceforce by reading our employment opportunities.

As we receive many applications for each position, only those selected for an interview will be personally contacted.
