Introducing Peacewatch: Yemen

Peace Direct launches a new strand of its work researching and engaging with local peacebuilders. The first in an original series of reports focuses on Yemen.

From now on, we will provide regular updates on specific peacebuilding activities taking place in key areas – even those in the middle of full-scale armed violence.

A vast amount of research and analysis is produced on conflict issues around the world. But less is written on the efforts of those trying to stop war, even as it rages around them. So our new reports, compiled by our network of Local Peacebuilding Experts, will provide coverage of efforts taking place on the ground, where others cannot reach.

 

The reports will provide analysis of the impact of key trends – social, military or political – on peacebuilding

 

The aim of these reports is not to provide background information on the conflicts we cover on Insight on Conflict. This will still be available elsewhere on the site. The reports will instead provide analysis of the impact of key trends – social, military or political – on peacebuilding.

We hope to draw attention to the fact that peacebuilding is not just a post-conflict activity. There are always individuals and organisations trying to end conflict, and supporting them should be a key aim of anyone trying to build a safer, more just world.

 

Peacebuilding is not just a post-conflict activity.  

 

Our first report is on Yemen, and is available to read and download. It has been developed by our Local Peacebuilding Expert in Yemen, although their identity has been withheld for security reasons. It is the first in a series of three covering covering the ongoing conflict on the Arabian peninsular, and we hope to expand to other key countries in the future.

Further reports will also be incorporated into the new Insight on Conflict website we are currently developing – along with much more detailed data and real-time information on the conflict zones we cover.

The new site will make it easier to see where violence is taking place, as well as the activities of those who are trying to end it. Check back in the next few months to see the results.
