What we do

We foster reconciliation and peace by placing human dignity and the human dimension at the heart of all our endeavors.

Our programs adopt an integrated approach that combines peace, security, and development aiming to transform the precursors and legacies of conflicts – 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.

Until these human aspects are addressed and overcome, personal and collective memories of suffering will return, hindering progress towards peace and development and trapping populations in new cycles of violence and revenge.

Areas in which we work:

Mediation and Dialogue

  • We create platforms for mediation, reconciliation, and political and social dialogue involving key actors at local, national and international levels
