Working with local partners on the ground we report on the crisis on Burundi, circulating weekly flash reports, producing in depth research reports and arranging meetings with governments and the UN.
Government and UN officials praise this as an invaluable resource and the best source of information from inside the country.
Our approach to advocacy
We strive to promote and practice our belief in nonviolence, the power of local action, partnership and respect. We do not take sides in a conflict, but this does not mean we will not speak out when rights are being violated.
Through our advocacy, we strive to act as a principled and practical expert on local peacebuilding for decision-makers and influencers in the international peacebuilding world, and in key countries where our partners work. We work to build relationships across conflict divides and with those of diverse political opinions, demonstrating the non-partisan nature of our work and effective peacebuilding.
We do not have all the answers, but we believe that our experience and partnerships with local peacebuilders provide unique perspective, knowledge, and creative solutions that might otherwise be overlooked.
