The Better Evidence Project (BEP) seeks to improve the evidence available to donors, policy makers, practitioners, and scholars in the peacebuilding community, thus strengthening our collective efforts to address the problems of war and violence.
Tbe Better Evidence Project is a project of the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution of George Mason University.
DM&E for Peace is specifically geared to providing information and resources related to peacebuilding efforts. They have an online library and webinars among other resources. You can subcribe to their mailing list to be notified about upcoming webinars and other information.
Part of DM&E for peace, Data Viz Center was "set up to offer tools and tips on how to communicate results, and also to showcase interesting pieces of data visualization in the evaluation field."
The Eirene Peacebuilding Database™ is a comprehensive collection of 3,381 indicators from 2,008 publicly available peacebuilding resources.
It is the culmination of nearly two years of work to search, catalogue, curate, and share peacebuilding key indicators that will help you all better assess your work and measure impact. It puts forward program approaches, indicators, and measures currently being used in peacebuilding across seven program areas: Social Cohesion; Governance; Violence Reduction; Dispute Resolution; Perceptions of Safety & Security; Resilience; and Trust.
The Everyday Peace Indicators research approach investigates alternative, bottom-up indicators of peace and how such bottom-up information can be meaningfully integrated into policy processes. The approach employs an inductive, participatory approach to the generation of indicators in order to measure difficult-to-measure concepts such as peace. Taking its cue from studies in sustainable development, the research approach asks community members to identify their own measures of peace. The EPI approach is based on the premise that local communities are best placed to identify changes in their own circumstances, rather than relying on external ‘experts’ to identify indicators for them.
The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) is a global leader in funding, producing, quality assuring and synthesising rigorous evidence. We support studies and reviews that examine what works, for whom, why and at what cost in low- and middle-income countries (L&MICs). We are also a global advocate for the generation and use of quality evidence in development decision-making.
In 2020 they published Building peaceful societies: an evidence gap map.
