Inclusive Peace is a think and do tank supporting peace and political reform processes through evidence-based advice. We provide expert support to national and international actors to make peace processes more effective and sustainable; we conduct research; we connect in-country processes with global policy debates, and we facilitate critical discussions. At our core is a team of experienced and highly qualified facilitators, experts, and researchers led by Dr. Thania Paffenholz.
At Inclusive Peace, we believe that peace is a perpetual process that all societies need to actively engage in to thrive. Our vision is for all countries to move towards becoming peaceful and inclusive societies. It is our mission to inspire, support, and connect people and organisations at all levels on their pathways towards more inclusive societies.
Inclusive Peace is the go-to-place for knowledge and advice on inclusive peacemaking, peacebuilding, and political reform. We are a thought leader and agenda setter, helping to develop the field of building peace. We advise on the conditions in which diverse actors can contribute to making peace and political change processes more effective and at the same time contribute to pathways to peaceful and inclusive societies. We work towards establishing structures for inclusion in societies to sustainably build peace over time. We help to identify opportunities, assess risks and remove obstacles, and provide creative options for effective and sustainable outcomes.
Our expertise is founded on knowledge from in-depth comparative, evidence-based, qualitative research and our extensive experience in supporting political change processes.
Our unique approach is guided by acknowledging local leadership and collaborative non-competitive partnerships as key. Inclusive Peace has a light organisational footprint and a vast network of academics, policymakers, and practitioners.
Inclusive Peace succeeds the Inclusive Peace and Transition Initiative (IPTI) at the Graduate Institute in Geneva. In December 2018, we registered as a membership-based association in Geneva under Swiss statutory law. We operate with a lean, flexible, and decentralised structure with our team spread across four continents.
