At the heart of the mission of URI is the search for peace between peoples of different faiths. This area gathers peace builders in the URI action network to make a positive difference in the world.
The URI Cooperation Circles are active in 22 of the 30 regions where there is conflict on religious grounds. In 2009, URI launched the Traveling Peace Academy to support the critical work of these CCs and satisfy a growing demand for training in conflict mediation. This unique program teaches grassroots leaders to build partnerships for peace and community development.
