This project aims to reduce violence and contribute to inclusive and sustained peace in areas the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD) supports mediation and facilitates dialogue between various parties of conflict. The project enables HD to fill a gap in the international field of conflict mediation by engaging with difficult-to-access actors on sensitive issues not addressed effectively through traditional state diplomacy tools or that fall outside of UN-mandated mediation processes. The project also aims to support the meaningful participation of women in peace negotiations and create inroads for women’s networks and organizations to play an active role in bringing peace to their regions.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes of this project include: (1) increased understanding and mapping of conflict risks and entry points; (2) women empowered to mediate in peacebuilding; (3) established first contact, new communication channels or building trust between conflict actors; (4) increased inclusion of marginalized voices; (5) improved peace and conflict management agreements, violence reduction and humanitarian access mechanisms; and (6) increased gender-responsive provisions in agreements or mechanisms supported by the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue.
