Pakistan

In Pakistan we work with a wide variety of people and organisations to address the drivers of violence and promote peace.

We have worked with chambers of commerce, the UN Global Compact and others to build the capacity of the business sector to adopt responsible business practices. We have contributed to reducing violence against women and girls by increasing men and women’s understanding of women’s rights, and promoting early warning of violence within communities. Through research, we have increased understanding of how development programming can contribute to peace.

We are working with journalists to increase tolerance, respect and mutual understanding between all communities in Pakistan. Our programming is building the capacity of journalists to practice inclusive, objective and responsible journalism, and supporting minority rights organisations to get their perspectives heard.

We have been working in Pakistan since 2012.
