USIP is the independent, nonpartisan conflict management center created by Congress in 1984 to prevent, mitigate and resolve international conflict without resorting to violence. USIP works to save lives, increase the government’s ability to deal with conflicts before they escalate, reduce government costs, and enhance our national security. USIP's headquarters is in Washington, DC with offices in Baghdad, Iraq and Kabul, Afghanistan and a full-time country representative in Islamabad, Pakistan.
The Global Peacebuilding Center extends USIP’s educational work to new—especially younger—audiences, introducing them to key concepts and skills in conflict management and to the challenges and importance of peacebuilding.
Through multimedia exhibits, educational programs, and online resources and activities (here at http://www.buildingpeace.org and through Facebook and Twitter), the Global Peacebuilding Center seeks to engage the next generation of peacebuilders.
