We work with communities to prevent or reduce violence that has been triggered by radical and divisive change. We aim to mitigate the effects of violence on people’s lives, while laying the foundations for long-term peace and stability.
Our Syrian Peace Resources Network has been working to bring together local community leaders in order to empower them to play a more active role in resolving conflicts. The result has been the establishment of community committees that promote dialogue as a method to resolve local problems. The committees support the peaceful management of conflicts by mediating peaceful solutions to disputes, increasing human security through service delivery, and stopping the spread of violence.

PCi supports SPLD Partnerships in 14 municipalities across Libya. The Partnerships bring together representatives of different community groups, and are aimed to build trust and strengthen relationships between the community and the local authorities, as well as between different community groups. PCi provides ongoing support to the Partnerships through a pool of Libyan Trainer Mentors, strengthening skills in areas such as mediation, negotiation, gender inclusion, and peacebuilding programme design and delivery.
PCi, in partnership with humanidev.tech, has launched OPSECA, a new online analysis and planning tool to help practitioners more easily manage the humanitarian and development planning cycle. Within the context of the Conflict Sensitivity Assistance in Libya Forum, OPSECA will provide the Forum participants access to ongoing conflict analysis, to help the international community better plan support to Libya in a conflict-sensitive manner.
A survey of participants in track-three dialogues was conducted between March and April 2018 by the Mediation and Dialogue Research Center, Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, with support from PCi. This was to test hypotheses developed during an earlier study about patterns and risks relating to track-three dialogues in Ukraine. “Understanding Dialogue in Ukraine: A survey-based study, Analytical Report 2018” can be downloaded here in English and Ukrainian.
A Communication Pack has been developed by PCi to support Trainer Mentors in Libya to design and implement actions aimed to promote PCi’s Social Peace and Local Development (SPLD) methodology in key locations across the country. For more information on the communication pack contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Download the Communication Pack Flyer in English and Arabic here.
In 2015, PCi supported the establishment of a conflict sensitive mechanism known as the Social Peace Partnership in Ubari, following successful delivery of a Social Peace and Local Development Programme in 2014. 20 Social Peace Partnerships are now established across Libya. This Case Study outlines evidence of the active role that the Ubari Social Peace Partnership has played to reduce tensions and prevent outbreak of violent conflict.
