Inclusive peace

Through various programmes, we enhance inclusive peacebuilding and security processes which are responsive to the needs of citizens and their communities. Our work promotes the role and leadership of women and youth in conflict prevention, peacebuilding, and in enhancing local security.

All our actions are anchored in the United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1325 and 2250. Civil society’s engagement in peacebuilding and state-building is a critical contribution to both conflict and crisis prevention. 

Resolving conflict and promoting social cohesion 

Women and youth are an integral part of inclusive, peaceful societies. However, their contribution to peacebuilding and security processes is often neglected.

In Iraq, for instance, we have involved young people in advocacy to prevent and eliminate gender-based violence.

In Burundi, DRC and Uganda, more than 400 young people participated in the Youth Borderlands Forum in 2021.

This project was developed by Cordaid and the United Network of Young Peacebuilders, UNOY. Local partner organisations received training in research and advocacy and strengthened their cross-border collaboration to work towards more inclusive peacebuilding in the region.
