Building strong institutions in challenging contexts

We are a trusted specialist with a long history of working with governments across the globe to build strong, accountable institutions in some of the world’s most conflict-prone and politicised environments, from the Middle East across North Africa to the Sahel. Using our networks around the world, we find the right resources at the right time, collaborating with partners to protect and promote the provision of legitimate political authority, from strengthening civil society in Libya to bolstering anti-terrorism measures in Iraq.

Supporting partners to move towards peace and stability

We aim to conform with international Do No Harm principles and contribute as far as possible to the peace and state-building efforts of other governments and donors. A key strength of our approach is our ability to manage and mitigate risk for clients. Through adaptive planning we drive cost-effectiveness and make decisions closest to where they need to be taken to ensure we consistently deliver in some of the most unstable and fast-changing environments.
