Our practice is rooted in the human dimension and we place dignity at the forefront of all our actions in the pursuit of reconciliation and peace.
Our programs are centered on the integration between peace, security and development with a focus on transforming the human precursors to, and legacies of conflict – ranging from trauma to hate, from prejudice to revenge, from fear to anger and beyond – into dialogue, forbearance, understanding, empathy and mutual collaboration for a shared future.
We understand, based on our own experience, that until these human factors are addressed, personal and collective memories of suffering will return and enmities will ultimately re-emerge to destroy any progress made towards peace and development, re-engaging populations in cycles of violence and revenge.
