Prospects for peace are strongest when governments operate transparently and accountably to deliver goods and services to the population, when laws reflect the common good, and when citizens and government collaborate to define and take practical action on the right priorities.

We help citizens and authorities establish constructive and peaceful relationships, so they can work together to solve the problems causing conflict in their communities.

We help local people, including women, young people and businesses, to shape the decisions that affect their lives, and advise governments on how to support the freedoms needed for a vibrant civil society.
