Peace Brigades International (PBI)


An international NGO that has been promoting nonviolence and protecting human rights since 1981.

Our work is based on the principles of non-partisanship and non-interference in the internal affairs of the organisations we accompany.

We believe that lasting transformation of conflicts cannot be imposed from outside, but must be based on the capacity and desires of local people. Therefore we do not take part in the work of the organisations we accompany. Rather our role is to open political space and provide moral support for local activists to carry out their work without fear of repression.
