Private-sector peace promotion

An assessment of the benefits, limitations, and determinants of corporate engagement in peace

Through comparison of case studies in South Asia, Central America and the Horn of Africa, this research project seeks to improve our understanding of the advantages, disadvantages and determinants of corporate engagement in peace promotion, and to generate evidence-based recommendations for peace practitioners considering partnerships with the private sector.
