    About Interpeace

    Interpeace is an international organization for peacebuilding. We were initially established in 1994 by the United Nations to develop innovative solutions to build peace. We have a proven and recognized approach to enable people to build lasting peace. Together with local partners, we jointly develop peacebuilding programmes. We help establish processes of change that connect local communities, civil society, government and the international community through our Track 6 approach. As a strategic partner of the United Nations, Interpeace is headquartered in Geneva and supports locally led peacebuilding initiatives in Latin America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
