International Alert is an independent peacebuilding organisation that has worked for over 20 years to lay the foundations for lasting peace and security in communities affected by violent conflict. Its multifaceted approach focuses both in and across various regions. It aims to shape policies and practices that affect peacebuilding and to help build skills and capacity through training.
Alert’s field work is based in Africa, South Asia, the South Caucasus, Latin America, Lebanon and the Philippines. Its thematic projects work at local, regional and international levels, focussing on cross-cutting issues critical to building sustainable peace. These include business and economy, gender, governance, aid, security and justice. Alert is one of the world’s leading peacebuilding NGOs with more than 120 staff based in London and 11 field offices.
As a result of funding from the David and Elaine Potter Foundation Alert has been able to implement and write up a peace and conflict analysis; engage with and influence other organisations and governments trying to make sense of and contribute to peacebuilding in Sudan; hire an Alert staff member to take forward the work on Sudan; and establish a Sudan Policy Analysis Group with partner organisations.
