For over 30 years, International Alert has been working to build positive peace and reduce violence, working across conflict lines and with all parties to conflicts.

Experienced and respected, we have a proud track record of achieving change in fragile and conflict-affected countries and territories.

Our vision is that people and their societies can resolve conflicts without violence, working together to build sustainable and inclusive peace.

Our mission is to break cycles of violence and to build sustainable peace by:

  • working with people directly affected by violent conflict to find lasting solutions;
  • shaping policies and practices to reduce and prevent violence, and to support sustainable peace;
  • collaborating with all those striving for peace to strengthen our collective voice and impact
