Welcome to PBI Ireland

Peace Brigades International (PBI) is a unique international organisation promoting nonviolent approaches to peacebuilding and support for human rights.

How we do this

PBI Ireland provides support to international field projects in Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico and Nepal.

PBI Ireland was founded in May 2014 at a public meeting in Dublin led by a recently returned field volunteer and attended by 17 individuals interested in becoming involved with the organisation.

PBI Ireland is part of a community of Country Groups around the world and is responsible for carrying out vital support work that allows the field programmes to operate smoothly. The work of the Country Groups is integral to the effectiveness of our protection of human rights defenders in the field.

They are responsible for among other things:

● Recruiting and supporting field volunteers.

● Building networks of support amongst government representatives and international NGOs.

● Hosting visiting HRDs during speaking tours.

● Fundraising for field projects.

● Advocating for national and international human rights protection.

● Promoting nonviolence and peace education. 

We share the mission and vision of Peace Brigades International.
