Peace Brigades International: Volunteer in the Field
The volunteers of Peace Brigades International (PBI) come from many different countries and backgrounds but share a strong commitment to nonviolence and a belief in the contribution that ordinary people can make to creating a more peaceful and just world. When there is a conflict within a state or between communities or nations, certain actions are possible and appropriate for outsiders - others are not. A PBI team seeks to encourage, by means of an international, nonviolent, non partisan presence, a peaceful resolution of conflicts in the local area. Most costs for volunteers are covered by PBI.
Peace Brigades International (PBI) is a non-governmental organization which protects human rights and promotes nonviolent transformation of conflicts. When invited, they send teams of volunteers into areas of repression and conflict; these volunteers accompany human rights defenders, their organizations and others threatened by political violence.
