Peace Process Support
Inclusive Peace supports actors engaged in peace and political transition processes on different levels and in various ways. Our aim is to ensure effective dialogue and sustainable outcomes.
Over the past five years, Inclusive Peace has supported over 20 peace and political transition processes in various regions and countries. Our engagement is based on state-of-the-art knowledge, comparative experiences, a vast network of experts, and our comprehensive institutional track-record. Taking a discrete back seat approach, we work with relevant actors to determine how experiences from other contexts can provide options for action.
Flexible and wide-ranging support
Our support ranges from accompanying individual actors to supporting comprehensive peace processes with several parties involved. Our engagement is flexible and always adapted to the requirements of specific contexts. In addition, we provide ad-hoc advice to governments, UN agencies, and civil society groups through a helpdesk service.
Our support falls into the following categories:
- Comprehensive overall process accompaniment, working with a multitude of key national and international actors
- Accompanying specific actors, including in certain cases over extended periods of time
- Provision of ad-hoc advice upon request
- Sustained support through the provision of on-going advice
- Process facilitation support
- Training and capacity-building
Support at critical junctures
We also focus on providing support at critical junctures in political transitions – understanding when inflection points open to realise the pathway to peace. We often engage simultaneously in the various tracks of peace processes, allowing us to create links between them.
Our peace process support is backed by Inclusive Peace’s wealth of comparative qualitative knowledge, which provides evidence-based options for engagement in peace and political transition processes.
