At the heart of the Integrative Peacebuilding program is a commitment to human security and well-being. Integrative Peacebuilding (IPB) both informs and draws upon emerging and past international practices. It acknowledges the value of co-creation of the structures, systems, dynamics, and conditions that are meant to effect change in peacebuilding and intervention efforts. The IPB Program is designed for people already engaging in efforts to bring sustaining peace into conflict and post-conflict areas. Based on the premise that integration is more effective than fragmentation, participants will develop the confidence and skills required for trust-building, repairing relationships, critical reflection, cross-cultural communication and dialogue, and integrating multiple parties and points of view.
The Integrative Peacebuilding (IPB) program enables passionate individuals to address profound challenges facing fragile and conflict-affected states.

Participants will appropriate concepts and processes that will allow them to apply a more reflexive, adaptive, and integrative approach directed toward the overall goal of nurturing local capacities and institutions to address local needs in ways that are mutually reinforcing, well-grounded, resilient and sustainable. The participants will also gain an understanding of how to manage complexity, identify emergent creative trends and adjacent possibilities, apply integral theory, and apply a comprehensive approach.
The IPB program skill sets will equip participants to effectively engage multiple stakeholders with diverse points of view and to implement proactive conflict-resolution initiatives.
