TransConflict is pleased to announce the launch of the Global Coalition for Conflict Transformation (GCCT), comprised of over forty organizations from a variety of countries.
The Global Coalition for Conflict Transformation (GCCT) brings together organizations committed to upholding and implementing the Principles of Conflict Transformation. The main objective of the GCCT is to raise awareness about the principles of – and approaches to – conflict transformation globally, whilst facilitating exchanges of best practice and providing a framework for joint actions.
The Global Coalition is comprised of over forty organizations from a variety of countries, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Uganda, Northern Ireland, Sudan and Croatia. To explore the composition of the Global Coalition, please click here or visit:
As Ian Bancroft, executive director of TransConflict, emphasizes, “there are many organizations doing excellent work in the field of conflict transformation whose methodologies and approaches can benefit the work of others. The Global Coalition will not only help strengthen ties between such organizations, but will also help reduce the gap between theory and practice by providing researchers and academics with an important pool of expertise.”
One of the unique aspects of the Global Coalition is that it is grounded in the Principles of Conflict Transformation, which all members have agreed to endorse and pursue. The Principles – which the Coalition will continue developing, and which a variety of other actors will be encouraged to adopt – provide an important guide for individuals and organizations considering how to engage with conflict-affected areas.
