Crucial to the establishment and maintenance of a just society is the promotion and prioritization of human rights principles in its practices, behaviors, and attitudes. Securing impartial, objective and independent transitional justice mechanisms is of the utmost importance for post-conflict recovery and prevention of human rights abuses. We believe undertaking this work both locally and regionally is the only way to create sustainable and prosperous post-conflict societies.
We train and support local organizations in monitoring risk factors associated with intergroup violence and mass atrocities. We also train organizations on when and how to sound the alarm if situations worsen. We are determined to expand the support we give to local early conflict mitigation and prevention systems, organizations, and coalitions so that localized threats and manifestations of violence are stopped before they escalate. Additionally, we work to establish and promote local-level democratization initiatives, particularly those that connect young people to local civil society.
