Peacebuilding & Development Institute

Mission Statement

The Peacebuilding & Development Institute (PDI) aims to provide cutting-edge training, research, and capacity-building opportunities for practitioners and scholars in the areas of development, humanitarian assistance, diplomacy, and conflict resolution.

In addition, the Institute provides practical opportunities for students to complement their academic work while connecting peacebuilding and development actors via research, symposia, and forums.

PDI has several components: Trainings & Symposia, the Summer Professional Training Program, the Youth & Gender Initiative, the Peacebuilding Forums, and International Programs. These components integrate policy, practice, and theory to create new approaches to conflict-sensitive and transformative peace practice.
