Peacebuilding Deeply is an independent news and information platform covering global peace and security. Our reporters and editors provide a mix of investigative and data-driven journalism, on-the-ground reporting, clear and compelling visuals and high-level events. We want to answer the question: how do you put a country back together?
The platform will engage local and international actors to connect expert voices and coordinate peacebuilding efforts and insights in one centralized hub. By building a passionate community and connecting a variety of disciplines, Peacebuilding Deeply provides a forum for learning, knowledge-sharing and problem-solving.
Peacebuilding Deeply is the latest platform launched by the team behind Syria Deeply – News Deeply’s flagship platform.
News Deeply is a network of theme-driven information and community platforms, led by an award-winning team of domain-expert journalists. In an increasingly complicated information environment, we surface the vital insights and stakeholder connections that help to advance conversations and inform decision-making on the issues that matter, deeply, to the state of our world today.
