Our work is designed to positively impact the quality of life of the people we work with. Through a range of approaches, we work with people and institutions so they are better able to anticipate and manage conflict without violence.

As a result of our work, we have seen improvements in relationships within and between communities, and between citizens and the state. We are contributing to more effective and transparent resource management, and reducing the impact of climate change on insecurity.

We pay specific attention to integrating gender in peacebuilding. And, in keeping with emerging global trends, we have started to look at the interactions between crime, violence and instability, to address key issues of today’s world that can lead to increased levels of violence.


Reclaiming the city: Ibrahim’s story

We supported young people to map their local neighbourhood in Lebanon, not only to empower them, but to allow them to actively participate as citizens and engage with their local authorities.

Annual report 2016

Our 2016 annual report presents examples of our work where we feel we have made an impact. From inspiring youth in the deprived suburbs of Tunisia to working to reduce the levels of violence against women and girls in Tajikistan.
