Building peace is a complex long-term process fraught with a multitude of political and practical challenges for national and international actors. Even when we have the best analysis, translating the right insights into impact remains elusive. Many peacebuilding efforts fail not because of deficiencies in their content, but because of deficiencies in the how of peacebuilding.
IPAT was created in 2013 by Interpeace to respond to an increasing demand from international and national actors wishing to benefit from the organisation’s experience and know-how in order to improve the impact of their peacebuilding strategies, policies and processes.
Through IPAT’s Strategic Advising and Capacity Strengthening services, our clients gain new knowledge, new skills, and improved know-how to develop more effective peacebuilding strategies and policies, and to contribute to a wide range of peacebuilding processes.
IPAT works with each client to select the right approaches to learning, analysis and design to help you achieve your goals. We focus on understanding the dynamics between all stakeholder groups from their different perspectives to uncover challenges and opportunities for peace that could otherwise be overlooked. We support you in learning about these needs, and advise you on how to make strategic use of the new insights to create inclusive and effective strategies, policies and processes.
IPAT is supported by the Governments of Finland, France and the Netherlands.
