International Alert works with people directly affected by conflict to build lasting peace. Together, peace is within our power. We focus on solving the root causes of conflict with people from across divides. From the grassroots to policy level, we all come together to build everyday peace, from the ground up. Peace is just as much about communities living together, side by side, and resolving their differences without resorting to violence as it is about people signing a treaty or laying down their arms. Peace is when you can walk your children to school in safety, feed your family or make a living, no matter who you are. That is why we bring people together to inspire and amplify our voice for peace. In collaboration with local communities, partners, businesses and policy-makers, we turn our in-depth research and analysis into practical solutions that make a difference on the ground.
