Interpeace

Description

Interpeace is an internationally recognised organisation that supports peacebuilding in fragile and conflict affected states to help improve their overall development outcomes. Interpeace’s proven approach to working in fragile and conflict affected environments, which is recognised by the UN, the donor community and peer agencies – is informed by international best practice, garnered both through the innovations of its programmes around the globe over 20 years of peacebuilding, and from its participation in international policy debates. Interpeace’s added value is its ‘Track 6 approach’ that integrates work across all levels of society, from decision makers (track 1), to civil society (track 2) and grassroots (track 3) which is crucial for building sustainable peace (track1+ track2+ track3=track6). The program supports the advancement of Finnish Development Policy and will contribute to the overall development of fragile and conflicted-­affected countries through directly and indirectly supporting their capacity to manage conflict in non-­violent ways. Specifically Interpeace will support country-­owned solutions for sustainable peace, and address peacebuilding gaps in at least 24 fragile and conflict affected states. Interpeace will support mediation, conflict mitigation and resolution mechanisms to nurture a culture of dialogue and peaceful resolution of conflicts. It will also contribute to strengthening legitimate, accountable and trusted public institutions that respond to the needs and priorities of the population for effective conflict management in fragile countries or countries in transition. In all of its peacebuilding activities, Interpeace ensures the concerns of youth, women and other marginalized groups are included in peacebuilding processes. Interpeace will also contribute to international policy and practice in the areas of peacebuilding, conflict prevention, conflict analysis and conflict sensitivity and bring local voices into international policy forums. This includes through its work in the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding and work on indicators of fragility and resilience. In addition Interpeace will support the wider international community in their efforts to develop strong and comprehensive conflict analysis and capacities for conflict sensitivity, by providing direct technical assistance and guidance through its International Peacebuilding Advisory Team (IPAT).
