AP is the first Italian organization specializing in peacebuilding.
AP contributes to developing the specific identity of Italy’s peacebuilding sector. To do so, AP works with several partners –from specialized agencies within the government to think tanks and NGOs– for promoting a concrete and honest dialogue on how to improve Italy’s contribution to peacebuilding and security processes, in Europe and the world.
We highlight experiences, capacities and resources specific to the Italian system, which can contribute to the resolution of violent conflict in the region and worldwide.
We interpret and synthesize relevant topics and develop research and analysis, based on which we promote advocacy and awareness-raising.
A particular area of interest for AP is the monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) of projects or programmes focusing not only on peacebuilding, but also on participation and governance implemented in the context of international development agendas.
Finally, we support peacebuilding processes and foster capacity building activities, aimed at those who work in the international development sector and need specific competencies for understanding, monitoring and responding to conflict dynamics.
