Introduction: 

In South and Southeast Asia we work with local people to improve public security and access to justice, and advise on how businesses can operate in a conflict-sensitive way.

The business of peace

International Alert’s Programme Manager for South and Southeast Asia, Markus Mayer, recently met with key officials from major national and multinational companies operating in Pakistan, to discuss the role they can play in supporting peace in the country.

Developing peace

Last month International Alert co-organised a one-day workshop in Islamabad, Pakistan on the importance of conflict-sensitivity in development programmes.

The session, held on 26 May, was for members of the End Violence Against Women (EVAW) Alliance, including representatives from the Aurat Foundation, Norwegian Church Aid, National Rural Support Programme (NRSP) and Oxfam.  

Politics for the next generation

A broad youth coalition should be established in Sri Lanka’s parliament to help address the issues of young people and the wider society, says the Young Political Leaders Forum of Sri Lanka (YPLFSL), a group supported by International Alert.

Shining a light on the shadows

Peace will only be sustainable in Mindanao if policy-makers and NGOs start paying greater attention to the role that shadow economies play in the conflict, we argue in our latest policy briefs from the Philippines.

Mindanao is the second largest island in the Philippines and the centre of a nearly five-decade-long separatist struggle. Last year we published a study on the role that shadow economies play in the conflict and any prospective peace process.

Fair, inclusive and accountable

International Alert is working with traditional and informal justice providers in Nepal to help them deliver fair, inclusive and accountable justice in their local communities.

The work, funded by the European Union, aims to ensure that local justice providers work in accordance with gender norms and human rights, and do not overstep their mandate by judging criminal cases.
