Our work

Our work portfolio is organised into our three main focus areas: peace process support, generating knowledge, and agenda setting.

Our three focus areas are closely connected and mutually reinforcing. For instance, our in-country process support serves as a laboratory for comparative global learning. In turn, lessons learned from in-country process support feed into peacebuilding and mediation theory. Knowledge generated this way also informs global and national policy processes and agendas.

Our practical engagement starts from multiple entry points: we respond to queries from international and local partners, we create forums for reflection, and we accompany peace and transition processes.

Peace Process Support

Inclusive Peace supports a diverse set of actors in peace and transition processes. Our engagement is based on state-of-the-art comparative knowledge, in-country expertise, a broad network of experts, and respect for local ownership and leadership.

Generating Knowledge

We conduct thematic and country-specific research related to peace and political transition processes. We work independently and in partnership with a range of actors. Our knowledge-base informs and is enhanced by work on policy and peace processes.

Agenda Setting

Inclusive Peace links its research efforts and in-country support to global policy and practice. We facilitate critical discussions in order to inform and change international and national normative development, linking this to evidence and action.

Theme, Women, Peace, and Security

Women have historically been systematically excluded from peace processes writ large. At Inclusive Peace, we work to promote women’s participation and influence as well as gender mainstreaming in all aspects of peace processes.

National Dialogues have facilitated political transitions in various contexts. Inclusive Peace contributes to a better understanding of the conditions under which National Dialogues are effective and produce sustainable outcomes.
