Norwegian Peacebuilding Resource Centre/Norsk Ressurssenter for Fredsbygging (NOREF) is an independent foundation established to integrate knowledge and experience in order to strengthen peacebuilding policy and practice.

NOREF supports the development of competence and resources in the field of Norwegian and United Nations peacebuilding efforts, and Norway's role as a mediator and key humanitarian actor in conflict and post-conflict situations.

The Centre collaborates with a wide network of researchers, policymakers and practitioners in Norway and abroad in order to provide resources and services on peacebuilding, mediation and humanitarian issues to, among others, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the UN. NOREF aims to contribute to bridging the gap between research, policy and practice through the gathering and sharing of timely information and analysis, and by organising briefings, seminars and other targeted events. It focuses in particular on ensuring that expertise from the South is included in its work.

NOREF was established in June 2008 by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is governed by a Board of Directors .
