We reach across disciplinary divides, bridging theory and practice, linking policymakers and citizens, and innovating the cutting-edge solutions necessary to meet the challenges of today’s turbulent conflict landscape. AfP is a close-knit office with a real dedication to working in teams; modeling the open, transparent communication which is so important in peacebuilding.
