Peace Brigades International (PBI)
Peace Brigades International (PBI) was founded in 1981 to undertake the task of peace-keeping, peace-making and peace-building under the discipline of nonviolence. It draws inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy and experience in the field of nonviolent social change, strengthened by similar movements throughout the world. As a third-party force it applies methods of nonviolent intervention in situations of conflict to establish peace and justice. PBI uses its international presence and global networks to protect, support and enable the work of human rights defenders and local activists for peaceful social change.
ODS was contracted by PBI to do a functional review of PBI´s decision making processes and structures, with the aim of providing practical recommendations for how these could be improved to increase organisational effectiveness.
