Peace Responsiveness

How humanitarian, development and peace actors can better contribute to conditions for sustainable long-term peace.

The international agenda for peace and sustainable development faces significant challenges. The number of ongoing conflicts remain at an all-time global high, millions of people displaced, conflict induced humanitarian crises continue and none of the world’s conflict affected nations are on track to meet key Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Peace responsiveness aims to make the international aid system fit-for-purpose by working together with humanitarian, development and peace actors to help reduce risks to conflict, to transform conflict dynamics and to enable more resilient, self-reliant and peaceful societies.







Our goal

Peace responsiveness seeks to enhance the ability of actors operating in conflict-affected or fragile contexts to be conflict-sensitive and to deliberately contribute to peace through their technical programming - in a manner that enhances collective impact, supports inclusive, gender-responsive and locally led change, and strengthens societal resilience to conflict and violence.

Promoting change at all levels. To achieve the aspirations set out, change needs to occur at multiple levels. That’s why our work focusses on the individual, organizational, programmatic and systemic level and follows a process of co-creation, co-development and a joining of hands, minds and hearts.

Our approach

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).


Our partners

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Interpeace is now offering a Peace Responsiveness Online Training course, which aims to support development and humanitarian practitioners to operationalise the Sustaining Peace agenda. While it has a strong programmatic focus on substantive knowledge and skills necessary to maximise peace contributions of sector-specific and technical initiatives, it also includes personal agency and organizational requirements necessary to work for transformational change.
