Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding

The Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (CSPPS) is a South-North non-governmental coalition of peacebuilding organizations that coordinates and supports civil society participation in the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (IDPS).

The goals of CSPPS are to develop and strengthen the voice and capacity of civil society at national and global levels to engage in the process of the International Dialogue – in agenda setting, policy negotiation, and in the roll out and implementation of the New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States. The CSPPS strives to infuse peacebuilding values and concerns into the International Dialogue and in related policy processes, globally.

This website presents the work of CSPPS and latest progress and news from the countries and international processes where it is acting to safeguard and solidify civil society engagement in .. processes related to peacebuilding and statebuilding. In all its activities the platform strives to voice the views and concerns of people living in places affected by conflict and fragility.  Ongoing, full and meaningful civil society engagement is critical to have these voices heard in the development arena and to optimize state-society relations.
