What We Do
HPI arose due to the increasing realization that conflicts are costly and devastating not only to the generations involved but also to their descendants. Conflicts in the region have failed to be won by force of arms over the years.
What We Do
The HPI engages in research, training, and documentation and pays particular attention to:
Facilitate collection of credible data about peace, conflict, human rights, and democracy
Forecast to increase preparedness rooted in risk knowledge
Facilitate youth-led dialogues for peaceful conflict resolution
Serve as a repository of data on mediation
Support intelligence-led planning
