Peace Research Partnership

The Peace Research Partnership (PRP) aimed to enhance programming and policy on conflict and security issues by the UK government and other policy-makers. It was a consortium of the UK’s three leading peacebuilding NGOs: Conciliation Resources, International Alert and Saferworld.

In 2017, PRP received funding from the UK Department for International Development (DFID) to generate evidence and recommendations for policy-makers and practitioners on how to support peaceful and inclusive change in conflict-affected areas.

Over the course of three years, the partners produced extensive research and recommendations on inclusive peace processes (Conciliation Resources), inclusive economic development (International Alert), and on inclusive security and justice, and decentralisation (Saferworld), as well as on gender and peacebuilding.

In its fourth year, PRP worked with the UK government to design and test practical methods to apply the evidence produced to date.

The project ran from May 2017 to March 2021.
