Support Peace Rising

How you can support Peace Rising

Thank you for your interest in the Peace Rising project. We need your help to achieve our mission. There are currently a variety of ways you can get involved or support the project’s work.


We are interested in collaborating with organizations and institutions doing similar research and are excited to learn more about your team’s work. We have a 501(c)(3) status and are interested in collaborating both with other nonprofits and with other advocacy organizations to create change.

Domain Experts and Practitioners

We are concerned about how best to address barriers to targeting, funding, implementing, and assessing environmental peacebuilding work and would be excited to talk with you about your past experience. We are currently seeking information and recommendations in the following domains:

  • Conflict prediction and prevention,
  • Disaster and conflict early warning systems,
  • Climate change impacts and adaptation in developing nations,
  • Environmental peacebuilding methods and impact evaluation,
  • International governance and state stability, and
  • Machine learning in social science contexts.

Join the Team

Over the next few months, we will be engaged in grant writing, research, and outreach. New team members will have the opportunity to build research skills and experience, connect with related organizations and experts in peacebuilding and conflict, and achieve lasting global impact while working as part of a close-knit team. While our ability to hire additional paid researchers is currently limited, we can provide significant assistance applying for institutional funding and fellowships.

Please reach out if you would like to join our team by emailing Peace Rising project director Amber Houghstow at We look forward to hearing from you.
