International Alert’s Strategy 2019–2023: Breaking cycles of violence, building cycles of peace

Experienced and respected, we have a proud track record of achieving change in fragile and conflict-affected countries and territories. Our 2019–2023 strategy outlines how, over the five years, we will redouble our efforts to break cycles of violence and build cycles of sustainable peace.

We will sharpen our focus, scale up our tried and tested approaches, and develop new strategies to respond to threats such as the rise in hate speech and violent extremism.

Our work will continue to be underpinned by research, analysis and a framing of issues that identify the root causes of violence and long-term solutions to conflict.

And we will continue to focus on five ‘positive peace factors’ that will help to lay the foundations for cycles of sustainable and inclusive peace.
