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 strengthen the voice and capacity of society to effectively engage in, and influence, peacebuilding and statebuilding as a critical contribution to crisis prevention and sustainable peace and development for all. The CSPPS strives to infuse the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding, Sustainable Development Goals and humanitarian processes with peacebuilding values, 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 policy 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.
