peace·build·ing

peacebuilding

 
pronunciation:
pis bIl dihng
part of speech: noun
definition: actions that promote peace between nations by supporting conditions that underlie peaceful social relations. Peacebuilding includes rebuilding the material and social institutions that are undermined or destroyed by violent conflict. Peacebuilding efforts offer non-violent alternatives for communication and conflict resolution.
As a result of these initiatives in peacebuilding, there is hope that war between the two neighboring countries will not break out again.
