Purdue Peace Project


The Purdue Peace Project (PPP) convenes everyday citizens to help them address immediate threats of violence in their communities. We continually monitor and evaluate our projects to maximize our impact. Then, we share our experience and best practices with practitioners and scholars around the world.

The PPP is a university-based political violence prevention initiative that does peacebuilding work in fragile states and conducts research to advance knowledge about political violence prevention at the local, community level.

   The Purdue Peace Project is committed to:
    > Its data-driven, locally led approach to peacebuilding
    > Its evidence-based results in preventing political violence
    > Doing research and practice – and having impact in both area

     Peace Meetings in Tuobodom

Between January and March, 2017, the Tuobodom Peacemakers Committee (TPMC), a local peace committee convened with the support of the PPP, organized a series of peace meetings to resolve a prolonged chieftaincy dispute between the Krotia and Abromam royal families in Tuobodom, Ghana. The participants discussed possible ways to address the chieftaincy dispute. One peacebuilding strategy that emerged from the meetings is sporting activities to engage and build relationships among youth, including sporting activities that would involve more women. A more immediate upcoming strategy of the TPMC will be a meeting to bring together members from both royal families.
