Peaceful Change Initiative is a UK limited company founded in 2012[1] and registered as a charity in the UK on 4 August 2015.

Official narrative

"We work with communities to prevent or reduce violence that has been triggered by radical and divisive change. We aim to mitigate the effects of violence on people’s lives, while laying the foundations for long-term peace and stability."

Charitable objectives

Our goal is to promote conflict resolution and reconciliation at the national and international levels. Our objectives are relieving suffering, poverty and distress, and building and maintaining social cohesion, resilience, and trust within and between communities. These objectives are achieved by the following activities:

  1. Investigating and identifying causes of conflict.
  2. Examining potential solutions to the conflict – or approaches to constructively engage with causes of conflict – through participatory research and analysis.
  3. Building the capacity of communities to play active and constructive roles in managing conflict

resolution and decision making processes, with a particular focus on socially and economically disadvantaged groups within communities.

  1. Mediating and facilitating dialogue between different parties to the conflict and affected communities, enabling the discussion of possible solutions and building relationships of trust.
  2. Recommending to the international community and the parties involved measures that can support the resolution of conflicts or contribute to preventing future conflicts.
  3. Promoting respect for human rights among individuals and groups, and raising awareness of human rights issues.
  4. Publishing reports on the causes of and recommended solutions to particular conflicts, and making these freely available for public fruition.

All activities aim to maintain the charity’s commitment to impartiality.
