The Dialogue, Empathic Engagement & Peacebuilding (DEEP) Network is a global community of peace workers, researchers and policy makers committed to a peaceful and ecologically regenerative world. Working with communities whose voices and life-ways have been marginalized, devalued, and neglected, DEEP initiates and supports intercultural dialogue and education projects grounded in “elicitive conflict transformation”, a systematic approach to conflict and peace practice that opens new, powerful pathways to peace and good living/buen vivir.  The DEEP Network projects:

  • promote diversity and intercultural understanding
  • bridge divides
  • foster empathy
  • empower marginalized voices and communities
  • transform conflict before it escalates into protracted violence
  • facilitate policy innovation
