Global Security Rapid Analysis

Conciliation Resources

Conciliation Resources, International Alert and Saferworld propose a three-year programme in which the three organisations will leverage their combined 75 years’ experience building peace across the world to provide evidence-based policy and programming recommendations to DFID and other peace, security and development actors. Through practice-based research the programme will analyse and draw lessons from interventions to address conflict drivers implemented by consortium partners and other external actors, in order to generate new understanding, practical lessons and actionable policies. It will build upon the consortium partners’ strong track record of research and programming in conflict-affected states, and their wide policy and practitioner networks. The programme will focus on issues prioritised in the UK’s SDSR and Building Stability frameworks, including economic development, peace processes, effective and inclusive institutions, and gender drivers of conflict. The purpose is to inform and enhance the effectiveness of DFID/HMG’s work to prevent conflict and build lasting peace. Programme outputs will focus on learning and adaptation of programmes, as well as providing practical lessons and actionable recommendations, targeted at relevant policy processes both nationally and internationally.
