The end of fighting does not equal the resolution of conflict. Historical grievances and the legacies of past conflict can continue to fuel ongoing conflict. The root causes of conflict and past legacies need to be dealt with, if a society is to have a just and lasting peace.
We focus on identifying the impact that violent conflict has had on groups and individuals within society, as well as the underlying factors driving conflict. And we strive to understand the various perspectives held by the different sides of a conflict. Then we work with the people affected, to create solutions which deal with the causes and consequences of conflict, and take steps towards peace.
