Our impact

The deep wounds left by conflict remain long after the violence has ended. Trauma and fear shape who we are and are passed down through generations.

That is why we collaborate with people from across divides to solve the root causes of conflict, and support people and institutions to better anticipate and manage conflict without violence.

Together with local communities, partners, businesses and policy-makers, we turn our in-depth research and analysis into practical solutions that make a difference on the ground.

We help improve relationships within and between communities, and between citizens and their governments, and contribute to more effective and transparent management of vital natural resources.
