What we focus on

Over the years, we have gained experience and expertise in a number of areas relating to addressing conflict. We prioritise these topics in our practical peacebuilding work and research.

Programme

Mediation Support

Mediation is vital in ensuring different sides of a conflict arrive at an agreement. We improve mediation processes by providing support and advice to mediators and peace negotiations.

Programme

Dialogue

Dialogue is an essential part of addressing conflict and building peace. We create opportunities for divided groups to come together, discuss the issues affecting them and develop solutions.

Programme

Engaging armed groups

Talking with armed groups is often an essential part of ending violent conflict. We engage with armed groups to build peace and provide guidance for doing so to others.

Programme

Dealing with the past

In moving forwards towards peace, it is important that the legacies of war and violence are addressed. We work on the memory and narrative around conflict, to avoid them continuing to feed into future violence.

Programme

Inclusion

For peace to be sustainable, the views and experiences of all those impacted by conflict need to be included in finding solutions. We work to ensure different groups, especially those most marginalised, have a voice.

Why peacebuilding?

Peacebuilding is about addressing the underlying causes of conflict. It helps people to resolve their differences without resorting to violence.
