OUR FOCUS

Solution Orientation for Nation Building

Conflict, Peace & Governance

Conflict and violence affect countless communities around the world, driving many of the worst humanitarian crises. In 2018 alone, there were 52 state-based conflicts, 77 non-state conflicts, and 33 one-sided incidents of violence which resulted in over 77,000 deaths. The past five years have witnessed some of the highest levels of fatalities since the end of the Cold War 30 years ago. Current estimates predict that 30 years from now, one in three people will be living in fragile and conflict-affected contexts. Conflict and violence are driven by a number of complex underlying social, political, economic, and ecological dynamics, or “root causes,” many of which directly connect to how communities and nations are governed.

Cutting-edge research

Institute for Peace, Security and Development ( IPSED) in Somalia is engaged in cutting edge peacebuilding research in their respective fields. However, due to the politics of knowledge production, their work remains on the margins. This thematic stream is particularly designed to allow ECRs particularly those from Somalia to present their research to an international academic audience.

Dialogue

The peacebuilding processes has increasingly been recognised as essential to positively transforming conflicts and building the foundations of peaceful and democratic societies. However, much of this discourse focuses on generalisations and often fails to highlight the evidence behind these assertions. As a result, key decision makers tend to have a limited understanding of what peacebuilding looks like in practice.

Thought Leadership

Increasingly competitive markets and conditions mean that companies and organisations are looking for better and more meaningful ways to engage with clients, decision makers, government and politicians. High-quality thought leadership can give you the edge and provides great peace building process.
Unusually our thought-leadership in Peace building, Development our research team is made up of mathematicians, economists, policy and conflict resolution experts who have advised different levels of the government. We closely work with subject experts to come up with the ideas and undertake modeling and analysis that others cannot perform well in it .

3. GENDER EMPOWER

We understand that investing in women and girls is important. Women’s economic participation and their ownership and control of productive assets speeds up development, helps overcome poverty, reduces inequalities and improves children’s nutrition, health, and school attendance. Women typically invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities than men. But they need access to the full range of credit, banking and financial services and facilities essential to more fully develop their assets, their land and their businesses..
The fifth Sustainable Development Goal is bold, broad and important. It challenges the world to: “Achieve Gender Equality and Empower All Women and Girls.” It’s a goal that I, as a woman, believe in wholeheartedly. And it’s one that seems to be particularly relevant as women and men are rallying for more equal rights, from wage disparities to family leave policies.
