Inclusive Peace & Transition Initiative

Research is at the heart of our work and identity. We conduct independent and commissioned research projects and use our results to advise various actors engaged in peace and political reform processes worldwide. Our research draws on a unique qualitative database of more than 40 case studies of peace and transition processes: the largest database of its kind to date.
