What we do

We help people find peaceful solutions to conflict.

We empower local people to build peace by providing them with training, advice and support. We bring together communities divided by conflict to find ways of resolving their differences without violence. And we advise companies, governments and international organisations on how their policies and operations can better support peace.

To do this effectively, we research the root causes of conflict around the world and address key issues that affect lasting peace and stability in high-risk places.
