ways to engage

Partner with us

We offer our partners a menu of options on how to engage with us and how to best benefit from our support. Our offer to them is demand-driven, contextually adapted, and non-prescriptive. All our efforts are collective in nature and co-designed, implemented, and monitored in collaboration with stakeholders at the local, regional, and global levels.

Based on the needs of the contexts and the specific demand of our partners, we adapt our support strategies and practical tools both to constituencies and geographies – e.g., from peace engagements aimed at stopping an active armed conflict, to peace processes that need to be revamped or revitalised, to strategies to prevent outbreaks of violence, and initiatives in support of peace consolidation.

Bring the non-usual suspects to the table and create synergies around context-specific initiatives.

Co-creating practical and innovative solutions

Simulate plans and scenarios to assess progress of ongoing interventions and allow for course correction.

Provide practical playbooks for adaptive peacemaking strategies to guide stakeholders towards an ecosystem approach to their work.

Run peacegaming simulations for decision-makers to support course correction around spe-cific contexts and/or constituencies.

Bringing actionable evidence to decision-makers

Gather and share evidence and co-create data gathering and assessment frameworks to forge consensus on strategies and joint action in different contexts.

Produce diagnostic and trend analysis at crucial “forks in the road” for peace processes (both prospective and retrospective), based on the Principles.

Co-create shared baselines and metrics to monitor and assess the quality of peace processes and outcomes, using the Principles as a reference for mutual accountability.

Organise joint analysis and adaptive action sessions for various actors, including role scenarios for planning, implementing, and monitoring peace engagements at different levels and with different partners.

Facilitate participatory periodic reviews of ongoing peace processes to bring together the perspectives of diverse and broader stakeholder networks and provide insights to enhance the legitimacy and effectiveness of peace engagements.
