Conflict is difficult and complex, but not unbeatable. We push for evidence-informed international policy and practice to support the path to peace.
Peace processes that involve women are more likely to last. We are supporting a new network of women mediators to increase the participation of women in peace processes and mediation at a local, national, and global level.
With the number of violent conflicts increasing, there is a worldwide need to respond more effectively. We are leading a global consortium to improve how to build peace in fragile and conflict-affected states.
Pioneers of peace often come from communities experiencing violence. Living at the hard-edge of conflict, they feel its effects every day – and are often best placed to understand its causes.
