This report offers insights and lessons from Conciliation Resources' own practice and approach to partnering. It is part of a study into how partnership between international non-governmental organisations and civil society organisation and networks in conflict-affected contexts can support inclusive and transformative peacebuilding. Our research explored the rationale and assumptions behind Conciliation Resources’ partnering approach and looked at how these play out in practice.
Lessons from Conciliation Resources' practice
This study is part of a wider research programme, the Peace Research Partnership, looking at how to support peaceful and inclusive change, conducted with International Alert and Saferworld and supported by UK aid from the UK government. Find out more.
Under this programme, Conciliation Resources’ focus is on peace and transition processes. We look at how inclusion can be enhanced, based on the evidence that peace processes that can accommodate a broad set of interests are more likely to facilitate peaceful and inclusive change. Partnership between international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) and civil society actors and organisations in conflict settings can be a way to support that.
