Municipal peacebuilding and sub-national peace processes

Municipalities and local authorities are essential to the successful implementation of peace initiatives, yet not enough international support is focusing on providing assistance to actors at the very centre of these efforts. Our programme addresses this gap, drawing on experiences from all over the world.

Syria country programme

PATRIR has been working inside Syria since 2016 with a consortium of international and local partners, in order to provide professional capacity building training for civilians remaining behind, including many IDPs. We conducted in-depth needs assessments in order to ascertain the skills most relevant for the current context, as well as those which they could carry forward in the event of a post-war transition phase.

The National Peace Department works for a world in which young people share their belief that their attitudes and behaviors are decisive in resolving conflicts and waging peace, a world in which they can and do act upon that belief with the beauty, creativity and enthusiasm specific to their age.


“As a professional development practitioner I had taken many courses on Monitoring and Evaluation of Development Programmes/Projects. The training on Developing Strategic Tools for Measuring Impact and Effectiveness of Peacebuilding Projects and Interventions has broadened my knowledge and understanding of the tools and skills for systematic and structured ways for measuring Impact and Effectives of Pecebuilding Projects and Interventions. The training is very important and timely given to equip Civil Affairs Field Staff on Monitoring and Evaluation concepts, tools and processes.”
