More than 22 years of work in conflict-affected regions around the world, has shown us that strengthening the links between the different levels of society is a vital element to build lasting peace. Facilitating positive interactions between local communities, civil society and political elites helps re-build bonds of trust and strengthens lines of communication where previously these may have been weak or completely absent.

These mechanisms and strategies that are adapted to each context, help foster political processes that guarantee legitimacy, trust and sustainability, because they are based on the meaningful participation of people from all sectors of society.

Our 2016 Annual Report, “Building bridges for sustainable peace”, illustrates how our Track 6 approach provides an inclusive peacebuilding method in 20 countries around the world. From contributing to build a peaceful federal state of Somalia, to re-building bonds of trust among Malians; and from helping Rwandans heal, to accompanying the Colombian police in its transformation for peace implementation, among many others.
