4. Organisation overview

PBI is a non-governmental organisation, registered in the USA, which protects human rights and promotes nonviolent conflict transformation. We provide protection, capacity building and other support for threatened organisations, defenders and communities pursuing social justice and defence of human rights in areas of violent conflict. Our current field projects are in Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Indonesia, Mexico and Nepal.

PBI project work is supported by a network of 13 country groups in Europe, North America and Australia, who carry out volunteer recruitment, advocacy and fundraising, and by the international coordinating office.

PBI uses a non-hierarchical model of organising and decisions are made by consensus. The General Assembly, which convenes every three years, is PBI’s highest decision-making body. In between, governance and operations are the responsibility of the international councils. The international councils, committees and working groups, together with the International Office constitute the International Secretariat (ISEC).

The International Office is being moved from London to Brussels in order to strengthen PBI’s presence and profile and build key partnerships with policymakers, INGOs, donors and other key external stakeholders in Europe. The role of International Coordinator is being expanded as part of this strategy.

Other IO staff will comprise a Governance Coordinator, Finance Manager, Grants Manager and Administrator.
