Annual Report 2018

Jun 2019
Conflict is difficult, complex and political. There are no easy solutions for resolving conflict peacefully. So, the world urgently needs to find different ways to respond. Our Annual Report 2018 demonstrates how we are making peace possible.

Accord - Navigating inclusion in peace processes

Mar 2019
Cover shot of Accord 28 navigating inclusion in peace processes
There is a broad global consensus that inclusion matters in peace processes. The 2018 UN and World Bank report, Pathways for Peace, asserts that ‘addressing inequalities and exclusion’ and ‘making institutions more inclusive’ are key to preventing violent conflict. The challenges now are to strengthen that consensus and to better understand what inclusion in peace processes means in practice. Effective peace processes do not mean including all of the people all of the time but making informed decisions about who should be included in what and how.

Proscribing peace

Jan 2016

For international NGOs and local civil society actors and communities, engaging with armed groups for peaceful ends carries immediate risks to physical security and to reputation, given the political sensitivities of the task. Likewise running peacebuilding programmes in conflict contexts where armed groups operate is complex and high-risk. If the group is on a terrorist list then these risks only multiply.

Why peace is more important than ever

Peace, security, a future: basic needs that people in the midst of violent conflict desperately want and seek. However, building back trust, livelihoods, institutions and relationships is a complex and long-term endeavours, full of steps forward and back. This is the task of peacebuilding. And we can’t afford not to do it. Here are just three reasons why peacebuilding matters today.
