International Alert is an independent peacebuilding
organisation working in over twenty countries and territories around
the world. We work with people affected by violent conflict as well
as at government, EU and UN levels to shape both policy and practice
in building sustainable peace. We also seek to raise public awareness
of the issues involved in peacebuilding, aiming to help the sector
increase its effectiveness and profile.
Our regional work is based in the African Great Lakes, West Africa,
the Caucasus, Colombia, Sri Lanka, Nepal and the Philippines. Our
advocacy work is focused on business, humanitarian aid and development,
gender, security and post-conflict reconstruction. Our public awareness-raising
is both in the UK and in countries affected by conflict.
