Find your Community

Network for Peacebuilding

If you are an experienced peacebuilding evaluator, we encourage you to sign up for the Network for Peacebuilding Evaluation (NPE). The NPE is a group of academics, analysts, and researchers working collaboratively with practitioners to address the challenges of peacebuilding evaluation, and developing innovative, and applicable methodologies for better evaluation of peacebuilding programs. By signing up to be a NPE member, you are subscribing to the NPE listserv and monthly newsletter. 

Education for Peacebuilding M&E

Education for Peacebuilding M&E is a community of practice formed to provide monitoring and evaluation specialists, as well as education and peacebuilding practitioners with an interactive space for sharing best and emerging practices on how to monitor and evaluate peacebuilding programs. If you work at the intersection of education and peacebuilding, we encourage you to sign up here
