About Justice and Peacebuilding
CRS’ justice and peacebuilding programs engage civil society and the public and private sectors to foster inclusion, equity and accountability. They focus on both peacebuilding and post-conflict recovery. Our peacebuilding programs are conflict sensitive, aiming to minimize potential harm and maximize social benefits for all. They are also gender sensitive, helping to reduce inequalities between women, boys and girls at the individual, household, community, national and international levels.
In 2015, CRS invested $31.4 million in 76 justice and peacebuilding programs in 33 countries.
