Our Mission:The mission of the Purdue Peace Project is to convene groups of local citizens in fragile states where clearly identified situations threaten to lead to political violence, and encourage and assist these citizens in their efforts to bring about peaceful solutions. In promoting locally-driven and inclusive approaches to peacebuilding, we seek to reduce the likelihood of political violence and contribute to lasting peace. In doing so, we also seek to add to the body of knowledge in this field by documenting and disseminating our work to practitioners and scholars alike.

What We Do: PPP addresses situations in which violence appears to be imminent by empowering local leaders to take immediate action to prevent violence.

Where We Work: PPP’s first operations are in West Africa. It cooperates with local, regional, and international organizations working for peace in the region. The Project maintains impartiality with respect to conflicted parties, focusing only on preventing violence between them.

Selection of countries to assist is based on the seriousness of the threat of impending violence and PPP’s appraisal of the likelihood that it will be able to provide meaningful assistance.
