Conflict, security, and violence

Social and economic disadvantage is increasingly concentrated in the world’s most fragile and conflict-affected situations. Delivering impact in these contexts requires different ways of working to take account of complex social dynamics and governance, logistical, and ethical challenges.

We support host governments, donors, multilateral institutions, and the private sector to navigate this complexity effectively. We combine research and analysis with technical services across the policy cycle, including conflict and political economy analysis, organisational capacity building, project design and management, and monitoring and evaluation.

Building on the most recent academic and applied research, we provide critical insights into common myths about the relationship between fragility, conflict, and development. We emphasise generating fresh evidence to develop policy solutions tailored to the local context.
