Life & Peace Institute

Welcome to Life & Peace Institute

Life & Peace Institute (LPI) is an international and ecumenical centre that supports and promotes nonviolent approaches to conflict transformation. This is done through a combination of research and action that entails the strengthening of existing local capacities and enhancing the preconditions for building peace.

LPI envisions a world where peace, justice and non-violent relations prevail through people’s active work and commitment. We have been active towards achieving this goal since 1985.

LPI works by supporting local civil society organisations in Somalia, Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Find out more about our conflict transformation programmes.
