The Peace Building Network of Zimbabwe

Conceived in August 2007, the Peace Building Network of Zimbabwe was formed with the specific intent to create a space where organisations working in the conflict management and peace building field would be able to meet, share ideas and expertise.


The Peace Building Network of Zimbabwe envisions the realization of a society in which The Network’s closely linked and coordinated peace building activities contribute towards the building of sustainable peace and development in Zimbabwe.


To coordinate member efforts in the development of strategic frameworks for effective peace building in Zimbabwe.


It was envisioned that from the knowledge acquired within this space, these organisations would be able to implement their activities in a coordinated way, which would benefit the communities within which they work. The Network also provides a platform for CSOs within the field to formulate joint responses to the needs of the communities and implement these in a coordinated way. PBNZ has successful partnerships with other institutions such as the Institute of Justice and Reconciliation (SA).

Key work areas:

  • Capacity building CSOs and communities in conflict management and transformation;
  • Research on contemporary peace building work;
  • Convener of multi stakeholder dialogues at national level.

The Centre for Conflict Management and Transformation (CCMT) is the Secretariat for PBNZ.  The Secretariat coordinates everyday activities and is accountable to the relevant funding agency both in terms of project reports and financial accountability.

Some of the publications that have been done under PBNZ include:

  • Towards a Nationally Shared Value system in Zimbabwe: Constitutionalism, Elections and Development;
  • Towards Nationally Shared Values: Influencing a Value Based Economic Environment;
  • Towards shared national values: Youth in dialogue;
  • Towards shared national values: The media-conflict and peace building.
