The Compton Foundation’s Peace and Security program seeks to promote peace by addressing the need for new policies and practices to provide for human safety in regions of armed conflict. Achieving this goal will involve the military, local police, international defense forces, diplomats, humanitarian relief organizations, private firms, and others. It will also involve establishing new working relationships and better coordination among them to provide for more effective human security. To achieve its goals and objectives, the Foundation will give priority to projects that:

  • focus public attention on the need for U.S. and international policy change in war-torn areas, including the need for new approaches and increased public funding for peace operations
  • develop and introduce curriculum changes in military and civilian training programs
  • convene agencies and organizations that work in war-torn areas to develop more effective policies and protocols
  • conduct demonstration projects in war-torn areas
  • convene private donors to share grantmaking experience and draw more funding to this area
  • disseminate developments in peacemaking and peacebuilding
