Knowledge for Peace


The research project “Knowledge for Peace. Understanding research, policy and practice synergies” aims to improve peacebuilding practice by looking at how research and knowledge about peace and its components are generated and how the politics of knowledge production impact policy making. The project focuses on transitional justice processes in Côte d’Ivoire, South Sudan and Mozambique.

Peacebuilding is “ambiguous, elastic and politicised…as a concept and as a practice

Bush and Duggan, 2014: 304

Any fool can know. The point is to understand
