PBI applies a strategy of international protective presence that supports local initiatives and contributes to developing a culture of peace and justice. We act on request of local organizations working non-violently for human rights and social justice. PBI''s international presence is aimed at accompanying human rights activists working to deter violence and promoting active non-violent resistance. PBI''s international volunteer teams use protective accompaniment, peace education, independent observation and analysis of the conflict situation. PBI supports its work through an international network of organizations and individuals. PBI''s identity is built upon non-hierarchical structures and consensual processes.
PBI currently has projects in Colombia,Guatemala, Indonesia, Mexico and Nepal. Our international volunteers accompany threatened human rights defenders, humanitarian workers, displaced populations and grassroots organizations struggling for peace and justice. PBI maintains fluid dialogue and an active advocacy campaign at national and international levels with military and civil authorities, churches, international organizations and the diplomatic community. In the case of a tangible threat against PBI or, more likely, one of PBI's clients, members of our network of government officials, embassies, NGOs and other high level contacts are prepared to respond and generate immediate international pressure at any hour to protect human rights. This vital emergency response capacity translates into saved lives.
