Who We Are?

Peace Ambassadors for Iraq (PAFI) is an internationally-oriented, non-governmental organization that is dedicated to achieving peace in Iraq and the Middle East. We believe that peace, prosperity, and sustainable development will enable the Iraqi people to resolve their differences and that a long-term solution to conflict in Iraq depends on reform of the country’s political process and institutions rather than continuing to relying upon military force alone. Governments, institutions, civil society, and individuals are all potential partners in this effort.

What We Do?

Peace Ambassadors for Iraq (PAFI) educates the general public, civil society, and policymakers around the world about the realities of life on the Iraq and methods to build a sustainable, long-term peace. Too often, headlines out of Iraq portray a country unwilling to unite behind a common spirit and sense of national unity. PAFI understands that in order to make progress toward lasting reconciliation and peace, the wider public and policy makers must be provided with a clearer and more nuanced picture of the people and politics in Iraq.
