Peaceful Change initiative regularly undertakes consultancy work.

We have, for example, completed consultancy assignments for:

  • International Organisation for Migration
  • Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland
  • UN Development Programme
  • The European Union
  • The Ukraine Non-Governmental Organisation Forum
  • Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)

We provide consultancy services in the following areas:

  • Conflict sensitivity advice: We produced the UN Guidance Note on Conflict Sensitivity, Peacebuilding and Sustaining Peace for UN multi-agency users involved in peacebuilding and sustaining peace (2020)
  • Conflict sensitivity trainings: We provided trainings for donors and implementers through the Conflict Sensitive Assistance Libya forum in Tunis and Tripoli to help participants understand conflict sensitivity as an approach and apply it to the specific needs of their projects (2019/2020)
  • Peacebuilding concepts and project design trainings: We work with both national (e.g. the Center for Civil Society and Democracy 2019) and international organisations (e.g. UNDP COBERM project 2013-2015) to design and implement high interactive and practical training programmes covering peacebuilding and confidence building core concepts as well as practical tools for planning, designing and implementing impactful programmes
  • Building the capacity of youth peacebuilders: We developed, tested and rolled out material for young people in Armenia to build skills in the area of peace and security, and provided training to individuals to facilitate the use of the material (2020)
  • Community security: We employ an inclusive methodology to help communities identify, prioritise and resolve their problems using existing resources whenever possible. Through this methodology, we aim to transform the way conflict is managed at the local level. For example, from 2014-2017 in Syria, the Peace Resources Network was created by the Center for Civil Society and Democracy and PCi, comprising 61 effective volunteer community leaders who work to find solutions for managing conflict, in order to achieve a safe and stable society, and to promote a culture of co-existence
