Global security rapid analysis

In 2017, together with Conciliation Resources and Saferworld, we began a three-year research programme on key processes that contribute to peace.

Funded by UK aid from the UK government, the research focuses on a range of conflict-affected regions and approaches, including economic development, political settlements and institutional reforms. We also look at ways to address gender drivers of conflict.

The programme will generate knowledge, lessons and recommendations tailored to policy-makers and practitioners working on peace and security.

International Alert will be focusing on three topics: the peace benefits of women's livelihoods in Nepal and Syria; natural resource management and its impact on instability in Mali and Myanmar; and the role that gender plays in recruitment by violent groups in Syria and Ukraine.
