IAHV Peacebuilding has been established in June 2013, with the aim to identify, articulate and develop IAHV’s unique expertise and approach to peacebuilding in order to strengthen existing peacebuilding efforts worldwide.
Its Mission is to Build a sustainable and inclusive peace by promoting the development of human values in both the individual and societies on a global scale.
Our human-centred approach lends itself to working across sectors and populations, including international organisations (UN, EU, World Bank), governments, managers and CEO’s, social and community workers, women’s groups, religious leaders, refugees, victims of violence, youth, terrorists and rebels, prisoners and children, bridging religious, ethnic and social divides.
