International Alert is a 26-year old independent peacebuilding organisation. We work with people who are directly affected by violent conflict to improve their prospects of peace, and we seek to influence the policies and ways of working of governments, international organisations like the UN and multinational companies, to reduce conflict risk and increase the prospects of peace.
We work in Africa, several parts of Asia, the South Caucasus, the Middle East and Latin America and have recently started work in the UK. Our policy work focuses on several key themes that influence prospects for peace – the economy, climate change, gender, the role of international institutions, the impact of development aid, and the effect of good and bad governance.
We are one of the world’s leading peacebuilding NGOs with more than 159 staff based in London and 14 field offices. To learn more about how and where we work, visit www.international-alert.org.
Kvinna til Kvinna strengthens women in war and conflict to enhance their power and influence. We work with women’s organisations in different ways to strengthen women to participate in the work for sustainable peace. We also provide information on the effects of war and shape public opinion on women’s participation in peace processes. We believe that gender bias and unequal power structures are underlying causes of social division and thus an obstacle to democracy, development and peace. Kvinna til Kvinna’s staff is currently about 70 people – spread over ten field offices and at headquarters in Stockholm.
