Open Peace Portal
Inclusive Peace is hosting the development of the Open Peace Portal – a future co-created online space for peace process practitioners.
The Open Peace Portal is an interactive, co-created online space for peace process practitioners, including negotiators, mediators, civil society, government and multilateral organisation representatives, and researchers. While the portal is operated by Inclusive Peace, it is a neutral space co-created by multiple partners, with its own logo and identity. The portal’s core components are:
- Knowledge hub including open access knowledge with easy-to-read texts, videos, infographics, and podcasts, available in different languages
- Interaction areas for practitioners to connect both with each other and with issue experts and policy makers
- Help desk to give timely advice and guidance
The portal is designed to reflect thematic areas and specific conflict situations. In the user-friendly online space, users can navigate quickly and easily to both public and privately available content, and take advantage of the resources and exchange spaces the portal provides.
Topics identified to develop so far include civil society and peacebuilding, reconciliation, women and gender in peace processes, and religious actors in peace processes. The portal has the technical capacity to take on numerous topics and is currently under development with the expectation to launch end 2022/early 2023.
