Our Core Values

Consensus Building: We believe conflicts can be resolved though meaningful dialogue and mutual commitment between the state and society.

Continuous Improvement: We innovate and constantly improve our approach and interventions. We promote out-of-the-box thinking and always seek new solutions to address protracted challenges.

Diversity: We know it takes people with different ideas, strengths, interests, and cultural backgrounds to make our Institue and mission succeed. We encourage healthy debate and differences of opinion.

Inclusiveness: We believe that everybody affected by conflict has a stake in peace. We work to create peaceful and inclusive change within societies in partnership with local people, to respond to violence, inequality, injustice and exclusion.

Transparency, Accountability and Participation: We strictly adhere to accountability, participation and transparency principles in our own work and promote the same in our partners and counterparts’ work.

Partnership: Our impact is wider and more enduring when we work with partners in government, multilateral organizations, business and civil society around the world.
