PEACE RESOURCES GROUP

The Peace Resources Group offers services to all those searching for peace and to all people and groups that are affected by conflict and violence. For our clients and partners we strive to be a tool for capacity building, a platform for dialogue and a source of inspiration and hope. With our diverse services we want to contribute to conflict transformation and to the building of a just and sustainable peace.

Our members have capacities and experience in conflict transformation, human rights as well as development and humanitarian aid in conflict prone areas. We are specifically engaged in the efforts for the transformation of conflicts linked to natural resources and mining in Africa.

We work with participative methods; we accompany transformation processes and organise tailor-made trainings; we offer support and advice for the development and implementation of context-related strategies, for networking and for advocacy.

Our focus is on civil society actors, but we equally have experience in advising governmental and international institutions.
