The Localizing Peace Initiative (LPI) works to promote the understanding of local peace in the Washington, DC region. By highlighting a wide range of vibrant activities, and by coordinating dialogues, events, and projects, LPI hopes to celebrate how peace practices and ideas have become localized, in Washington and beyond. To advance discussion of our local peace processes and invite dialogue about the larger idea of “localizing peace,” we have assembled the following materials and resources:
- an academic paper presenting the “localizing peace” vision;
- an annotated bibliography on localizing peace; and
- a localizing peace directory of local organizations engaged in community-relevant peace work, with contact information and brief overviews of relevant activities.
The Localizing Peace Initiative continues to collaborate with partners throughout the community through its activities and discover new opportunities for learning together through dialogue and action.
