The Mindanao Peacebuilding Institute (MPI) is an Asian training institute grounded in the Mindanao, Philippines, context that provides a space for people of diverse backgrounds to gather together, share, and learn in a safe environment where all viewpoints are encouraged and respected. MPI is a resource for peacebuilders: providing skills, conducting research and building solidarity within the Asia-Pacific Region.
MPI was established in 2000 with the help of local and international organizations, to bring together peacebuilders of diverse cultures from the Asia-Pacific Region to participate in its annual peacebuilding training. Since its inception, MPI has trained over 2,000 peacebuilders coming from more than 50 countries around the globe. Aside from gaining new practical skills, many participants ascribe equal value to the bonding, friendships, and solidarity that are created among peace advocates from these countries. Indeed, MPI has become a venue where participants strengthen their commitment to peacebuilding through continuing association with peer practitioners.
In its 20th year as a training institute, MPI will again endeavor to create a space where peacebuilders meet in mind, heart, and spirit to keep abreast of the challenges that the issues of peace and justice present, during the MPI 2019 Annual Peacebuilding Training from May 13 to May 31, 2019, at Mergrande Ocean Resort, Davao City, Philippines.
