About Us

Peace Brigades International (PBI) is an international non-governmental organisation that has promoted non-violence and protected Human Rights Defenders since 1981.

PBI works to protect Human Rights Defenders (HRDs), ordinary people and groups who face death threats, intimidation, detention and harassment because of their peaceful work in defense of Human Rights.

We provide protection, support and recognition to local human rights defenders who work in areas of repression and conflict and have requested our support. We believe that lasting transformation of conflicts cannot come from outside, but must be based on the capacity and desires of local people. We avoid imposing, interfering or getting directly involved in the work of the people we accompany. Our work is effective because we take an integrated approach, combining a presence alongside human rights defenders on the ground with an extensive network of international support.

PBI has 37 years of experience working alongside human rights defenders, opening and protecting space for peace, conflict transformation and the defence of human rights throughout the world. We are a life-saving international presence in areas of conflict and repression, and a powerful global advocacy network protecting those on the ground. PBI has previously worked in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Sri Lanka, North America, Haiti, Nepal and the Balkans and currently maintains projects in Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico and Nepal.
