Mission Statement

Peace Brigades International works to establish justice and peace in the world through nonviolent action. To do this we send unarmed international peace teams, when invited, into areas of repression or conflict. By so doing, we challenge the belief that violent institutions and warfare must inevitably dominate human affairs. PBI demonstrates that as international volunteer, citizens can act boldly as peacemakers when their governments cannot. Through its activities, PBI learns about, develops, and models forms of nonviolent action in the spirit of Gandhi's experiments with truth.

Description

Peace Brigades International is a London based NGO with offices around the world. Current program committees organize the placement of volunteers with local human rights workers in Colombia, Haiti, the Balkans, East Timor and Mexico.
