Who we are

International Alert works with people directly affected by conflict to build lasting peace. Together, we believe peace is within our power.

We focus on solving the root causes of conflict, bringing together people from across divides. From the grassroots to policy level, we come together to build everyday peace.

Peace is just as much about communities living together, side by side, and resolving their differences without resorting to violence as it is about people signing a treaty or laying down their arms. That is why we believe that we all have a role to play in building a more peaceful future.

Vision

Our vision is for a world where people seek to resolve their differences peacefully; a world where, when people seek better lives for their families and communities, they are able to manage any conflicts that may arise with honesty and wisdom, without resorting to violence.

Mission

Our mission is to build a more peaceful world by:

  1. Working with people directly affected by conflict to find peaceful solutions
  2. Shaping policies and practices to support peace
  3. Collaborating with all those striving for peace to strengthen our collective voice and impact

We work in over 25 countries and territories around the world.
