Purdue Peace Project


The Purdue Peace Project (PPP) is a university-based political violence prevention initiative that does peacebuilding work in areas threatened by such violence and conducts research to advance knowledge about political violence prevention at the local, community level. 

The 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 effective practices with practitioners and scholars around the world.

   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 areas
