Sustainable Peacebuilding Network (SPN)

Directors: Roland Paris (Univ. of Ottawa) and Timothy Sisk (Univ. of Denver)

The Sustainable Peacebuilding Network (SPN) is an international research initiative involving more than 20 scholars examining the requirements for sustainable peace in countries emerging from civil wars.

The project is co-sponsored by the  University of Ottawa's Centre for International Policy Studies and the University of Denver's Center for Sustainable Development and International Peace. It is supported by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

The Project is an extension of the Research Partnership on Postwar Statebuilding (RPPS), which completed its work in early 2008.
