About The Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers:
Organization Overview The Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers (the Network) was founded in 2013 as a concrete response to the growing awareness among peace mediation organization and the United Nations, that religious and traditional actors are vital, but underutilized, actors in peacemaking processes. Since its founding, the Network has grown into a community of peacemakers ranging from grassroots religious and traditional actors to international NGOs, think tanks, and academic institutions. The Network strengthens peacemaking through collaboratively supporting the positive role of religious and traditional actors in peacebuilding processes and through connecting them to national and international peacebuilders. Since its founding, the Network Secretariat has been host by Finn Church Aid (FCA), Finland’s largest development agency and provider of humanitarian aid, while the steering body of the Network, the Core Group, consist of variety of actors from UN Agencies to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Religions for Peace and KAICIID Dialogue Center.
