Konfliktforebyggelse og fredsopbygning er centrale tilgange til at løse internationale voldelige konflikter som Netværket for Konfliktforebyggelse og Fredsopbygning vil arbejde mod at sætte højere på danske CSOers dagsorden. Med fokus på vidensgenerering og udbredelse af en tiltagende værktøjskasse af redskaber til konfliktanalyse, konfliktfølsom programmering og fredsopbygning henvender Netværket sig til danske aktører med interesse for aktiviteter i det globale syd.


RIKO, Oxfam IBIS, Care Denmark og Dansk Flygtningehjælp står bag etablering af Netværket, der er en arbejdsgruppe under Globalt Fokus. Styregruppen i netværket består foruden førnævnte organisationer af Dansk Center for Konfliktløsning og Danmission.


Netværkets arbejdssprog er engelsk.

Network for Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding

“Conflict prevention and peacebuilding are cost-effective ways of improving human lives in the long run”

The Network for Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding joins an international chorus of actors advocating for addressing violent conflicts through conflict prevention and peacebuilding. The Network is for Danish actors, primarily NGOs, but also public and private stakeholders, invested in humanitarian and development projects in the Global South. Its key purpose is to generate and share practical knowledge on peacebuilding and conflict preventive programming and facilitate capacity building among Danish actors.

Join the Network

The Network intends to combine and build best practice from actors engaged in conflict-affected societies, that be in a thematic, strategic or pragmatic manner. Actors engaged in work relevant to the Network are therefore invited to join the network. You will receive updates about the Network and invitations to future events hosted under the Network, and are encouraged to contribute with events, which are relevant to conflict prevention and peacebuilding.

Upcoming Activities

In 2019, the Network and its members will continue hosting and facilitate a number of workshop, training and learning opportunities. Join the network to receive invitations for the events in your mailbox.

Mini-workshop on conflict analysis
  • Expected April 2019
  • Organiser: Danish Refugee Council
  • Target group: The workshop is for actors with good understanding and/or experience of working in and on conflict

In DRC, we are in the process of developing a toolkit on conflict analysis and conflict sensitivity to meet our needs as an operational INGO working across the humanitarian-development-peace nexus. In this process we are reviewing key questions such as why and when we need conflict analysis, what we need to know, how to carry out conflict analysis, how to balance the need for quality analysis with practical constraints in time and resources and how to ensure most effective utilisation of conflict analysis in our programming and advocacy efforts in conflict affected contexts. In this workshop we will discuss these and related questions with the aim of enhancing our collective understanding of the challenges and possible solutions to these questions to promote more effective use of conflict analysis by operational NGOs. 

Training on Rapid Conflict Analysis
  • Expected April 2019
  • Organiser: Danish Refugee Council
  • Target group: The workshop is for actors with good understanding and/or experience of working in and on conflict
While it is broadly recognised that humanitarian agencies when operating in conflict affected context must have a good understanding of local conflict dynamics in order to minimise the risk of ‘doing harm’, many struggle to ensure that conflict analysis is carried out in a timely fashion and is of sufficient quality to be available and useful when needed. Part of the challenge is to identify what constitute good enough conflict analysis and to become clear on how it can be carried out quickly to inform operational response in the early stages of an intervention. In this workshop, DRC will take the participants through its newly developed approach to rapid conflict analysis and discuss how, when and why rapid conflict analysis can be applied. 
Conflict Sensitivity Workshop
  • Expected April 2019
  • Organiser: Danish Refugee Council
  • Target group: The workshop is somewhat introductory and targets actors who do not have a lot of experience on this already

The concept of conflict sensitivity has been around for two decades but remains as relevant today as it was when it was first conceptualised. This training is a full day introduction to conflict sensitivity for NGO staff. It provides an overview of the background of conflict sensitivity, why it is important, the key analytical concepts and how to integrate conflict sensitivity in NGO operations. 

Youth and Gender
  • Expected March 2019

  • Organiser: Oxfam IBIS

In December 2015, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace, and Security. As an initial step, the Resolution called for the UN Secretary-General to undertake a Progress Study focused on the positive contribution of youth to peace processes and conflict resolution, in order to shape recommendations at local, national, regional, and international levels. A half-day seminar will be organized in late 2018 in an effort to draw on this landmark report and shape ongoing and planned engagements by the Danish Government and Danish NGOs engaged in peacebuilding and working with youth.
