Broadcasting Peace: Insights and lessons from local peacebuilders in Eastern DRC

27 April 2020
GAAMAC partner Peace Direct’s latest report, ‘Broadcasting Peace: Insights and lessons from local peacebuilders in Eastern DRC’ is now available.

‘Broadcasting Peace’ is informed by interviews with local civil society groups, and argues that local peacebuilders are best placed to identify and respond to initial signs of conflict, provide crisis assistance and lead recovery strategies. Congolese peacebuilders effectively engage in atrocity prevention in a variety of ways, yet their efforts need to be recognised and supported in order to amplify their reach and impact.

The report is the latest in their series of ‘Local Voices for Peace‘ reports, the aim of which is to raise the profile of civil society perspectives on peace and conflict. The report is now available on an interactive website site created by Peace Direct.
