Who we are

CSPPS is a member-led global network that coordinates and supports civil society participation in the International dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (IDPS) and related policy processes.

CSPPS is a South-North non-governmental coalition of peacebuilding organisations, which aims at strengthening the voice and capacity of society to effectively engage in, and influence, peacebuilding and statebuilding as a critical contribution to crisis prevention, sustainable peace and development for all. First hosted and coordinated by Interpeace, and now by Cordaid, CSPPS has been acting since 2011 as the central platform where civil society ideas are generated, where progress with regard to the Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Goals (PSG) is discussed, and where consensus is sought on the course of action to be taken with respect to the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (IDPS).

Theory of Change CSPPS

Theory of Change

If we shape and influence global and national structures and processes to address sources of destructive conflict and to build resilience, then countries and their citizens will be less likely to resort to violent conflict because they will have means to manage their grievances and build the quality of their lives.
