Promoting peace and conflict resolution throughout the world

We are a charity, with many years’ experience,  working to enable divided communities and the general public to explore and better understand the roots of war, terrorism and violence. We promote dialogue and mediation as the means to peace.

In particular Building Bridges for Peace advances conflict transformation by enabling those involved in hostilities to break the cycle of violence and revenge by appreciating the humanity of their opponents and the power of empathy.

We hope that you will feel inspired by your visit here.

Please do invite us to speak or run workshops for your communities or groups. Also, our work relies very much on the support of our audience. Please consider donating to ensure that we can continue to further our work. Thank you.
