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.
