EIAP is a groundbreaking three-year initiative seeking to improve the evaluation practices of inter-religious peacebuilding by addressing three specific gaps in inter-religious peacebuilding efforts—measurement, cooperation and policy. During the meeting, a group of 30 thought leaders and practitioners from Israel, Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and the United States shared experiences and made recommendations for a new comprehensive and practical guide to evaluating inter-religious action. A draft of the guide will be field-tested in diverse environments during the coming year before it is shared broadly.
Beyond enhancing the guide EIAP is developing, the fruitful conversations had during the meeting made valuable connections that will help build the field of inter-religious action for peacebuilding as a whole. GHR's work with EIAP is a part of our efforts to bring the potential of inter-religious action to new places and partners. To learn more about GHR's inter-religious funding, contact us.
