American University Peacebuilding Institute
The Peacebuilding & Development Institute (PDI) provides cutting-edge training, research, assessment, and capacity-building opportunities in the areas of peacebuilding, conflict-sensitive development, humanitarian assistance, diplomacy, and conflict resolution. PDI was founded in 2001 and has five components that integrate policy, practice, and theory to create new approaches to conflict-sensitive and transformative peace practice. These components are the Summer Professional Training Program, customized Training & Symposia, the Youth & Gender Initiative, Peacebuilding Forums, and International Programs. A commitment to diversity has profoundly shaped the Institute’s programs from its inception and is present in our staff, our programs, and through all our efforts.
