Global Initiatives

Violence does not respect boundaries, and does not arise in a vacuum. Some of our work spans multiple regions to explore and share common strategies for resolving conflict peacefully.

Programme

International Policy

Conflict is difficult and complex, but not unbeatable. We push for evidence-informed international policy and practice to support the path to peace.

Programme

Women Mediators across the Commonwealth

Peace processes that involve women are more likely to last. We are supporting a new network of women mediators to increase the participation of women in peace processes and mediation at a local, national, and global level.

Programme

Smart Peace

With the number of violent conflicts increasing, there is a worldwide need to respond more effectively. We are leading a global consortium to improve how to build peace in fragile and conflict-affected states.

Programme

Peace at the hard-edge of conflict

Pioneers of peace often come from communities experiencing violence. Living at the hard-edge of conflict, they feel its effects every day – and are often best placed to understand its causes.
