Counter Terrorism, Violence and Human Rights
We explore how violence is experienced and perpetrated, and how it can be prevented in a sustainable and effective way. We also examine pathways to promote and protect human rights and dignity.
Conflict Sensitivity and Rethinking Aid (August 2022)
In collaboration with Saferworld (UK) and ASAL Consulting in Mogadishu, Somalia, a series of two panel discussions and an article written for Development in Practice were developed to call for a more progressive approach to conflict sensitivity. This is to make sure that conflict sensitivity practices are less of a technical, box-ticking exercise, and more of a political effort to address structural inequalities in the aid system.
Review of the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) Conflict and Stabilization Monitoring Framework (CSMF) in Iraq (December 2022)
The CSMF is a data collection tool that has been adapted to the Iraq context from USIP’s Measuring Progress in Conflict Environments (MPICE) framework. Through a collaboration with USIP, this study presented an in-depth review of the CSMF as a data collection tool and a data source for analysts, policymakers and international and local civil society actors to act on reducing conflict and supporting peacebuilding efforts in Iraq. The study charted opportunities for the optimization of the CSMF as a data platform that seeks to influence peacebuilding policy and programming in Iraq.
