ROCKEFELLER BROTHERS FUND: Peacebuilding Program

Discipline:

Region:

The Fund’s Peacebuilding program aspires to strengthen grassroots constituencies for peace and to connect them with policymaking on the regional and international levels. It aims to understand the conditions that lead to violence and the processes that support durable peace in order to identify innovative solutions to the most pressing drivers of insecurity. The program’s grantmaking focuses on conflicts that have a disproportionate influence on international peace and security. It works closely with the Fund’s Pivotal Place programs, especially in the Western Balkans, and with the Global Governance portfolio of the Democratic Practice program. The Fund places particular importance on elevating the role of women and young leaders in international peacebuilding and conflict transformation efforts.
