Conciliation Resources (CR) is an international non-governmental organization registered in the UK as a charity. We work mainly in the South Caucasus, Fiji, Uganda, Sudan and West Africa in partnership with local and international civil society organizations and governments. We also publish Accord: an international review of peace initiatives and are involved in projects in Colombia and the Philippines. Our funding is through grants from governments, independent trusts and foundations.

Our goals are to: support people working at local, national and international levels to develop effective solutions to social, economic and political problems related to violent conflicts; provide opportunities for inclusive dialogue and improved relationships within communities and across conflict divides at all social and political levels; influence governments and other decision makers to employ conflict transformation policies that promote alternatives to violence; improve peacemaking practice and policies by promoting learning from peace processes around the world; challenge stereotypes and increase public awareness of human rights, conflict and peace issues in divided societies
