We support non-governmental organisations (NGOs), donors, governments and businesses to integrate conflict-sensitivity into, and maximise the peace potential of, their work, enabling them to be more effective in fragile and conflict-affected contexts.
We work with political actors to create safe spaces that can sustain dialogue, bridge gaps in communication and promote new models of collaboration where violent conflict or the threat of violent conflict demands ways of doing politics differently.
We collaborate with influential people in divided societies to produce joint analysis and to promote public debate on the drivers and consequences of violent conflict, and encourage the search for innovative pathways to peace.
We work with civil society and security and justice providers in countries affected by violent conflict or undergoing transition to ensure that efforts to strengthen security and justice provision are informed by and respond to the needs of local people.
