Citizens in Partnership Programs
The National Peace Foundation's Citizens in Partnership Programs are designed to connect grassroots organizers with their colleagues and subject matter experts around the world, helping them exchange best practices on a variety of issues. These cross-cultural programs involve dialogue and partnership, aiming to reduce the risk of inter-group conflict within societies and across borders. Exchange programs empower emerging leaders with knowledge and skills, thus improving their effectiveness.
Since 2001, our focus area for Citizens in Partnership Programs has been Russia and Eurasia, and NPF has cultivated lasting partnerships with community leaders in Russia, Moldova, and the Republic of Georgia, to name a few. Some of our past successes:
- In the Republic of Georgia, NPF established a direct relationship between Georgian attorneys and their U.S. colleagues. To promote the rule of law, they are now working together to perfect a Georgian bar association and establish new jury selection procedures.
- To protect citizen health in Moldova, NPF brought together national and regional medical authorities with rural clinicians and introduced them to a large network of leading U.S. and other experts on the treatment of hepatitis, tuberculosis, and HIV.
These successful citizen partnerships are proof of the importance of grassroots citizen efforts to create a better world.
