We have launched the new FACE Peace Program Design Tool! 💻

The Future of Activities, Collaborations, and Events in Peacebuilding (FACE Peace) Program Design Tool is intended to help program designers make careful, evidence-informed choices about the use of face-to-face, online, and hybrid modalities in their peacebuilding programming.

Users can use the Dashboard to answer a series of questions that will quickly create a customized design brief for the programming or use the Resources tab to browse over 100 relevant resources.

We are excited to welcome a new cohort of Kroc Border Fellows! Learn more: https://hubs.la/Q02yHCYT0

The Kroc Border Fellows program brings together leaders working in academia, civil society, the public sector, and the private sector to build a more inclusive and peaceful Mexico-U.S. border region. The program engages in action oriented research and meaningful community partnerships to strengthen peace and justice on both sides of the border.

During the non-residential program, the Kroc Border Fellows contribute to a cross-border network of local scholars, practitioners, and policymakers who work to reduce vulnerabilities for women, provide opportunities for at-risk youth, protect migrants, increase access to justice, contribute to environmental resilience, and prevent violence and human rights abuses.

This FACE Peace design brief considers activities and strategies to create the strongest possible relationships between facilitators and participants and an instructional design that provides participants with the information and structure they need to prepare for and contextualize the program content. Trusting relationships allow students to share experiences and exchange knowledge more honestly and fluidly, while structure affords them the resources they need to remain attentive and manage work/life balance.

This Peace In Our Cities report by Hernán Flom, PhD with Urban Violence Program Officer Alfredo Malaret Baldo, was produced in close collaboration with network members, such as Oakland’s Department of Violence Prevention, REACH Edmonton, Foro Regional Rosario, Empire Fighting Chance in Bristol, and Fundacion Alvaralice in Cali. The report unpacks lessons from and for effective offices of violence prevention (OVPs).

OVPs are currently among the most exciting innovations in urban violence prevention space, and the report draws on analysis and case studies - including from Peace in Our Cities members - to suggest lessons on ways stakeholders can balance political support and autonomy, improve ‘whole-of-city’ violence prevention coordination, and be financially sustainable, among other important considerations to enhance their effectiveness.
