The Peace Centre is part of a consortium Just Future Alliance that came together to support civil society actors and women’s rights organizations in fragile contexts through a global strategic partnership to achieve the following long-term impact:
Improved accessibility, responsiveness and accountability of security and justice
institutions, inclusive political decision-making and peace processes, achieved by mobilizing civil society for collective action and advocacy that contributes to acceleration and localization of SDG16+ in 6 fragile countries (Afghanistan, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Mali, Niger and South Sudan).
The project focuses on three outcomes:
1. Security providers are more responsive, accountable and people-centred, and take action enabling the most excluded constituencies to enjoy safety, protection and enforcement of the law;
2. Justice providers are more accessible, responsive and accountable, and take action enabling the most excluded constituencies, to defend and enforce their rights, redress grievances and resolve disputes through diverse pathways to justice;
3. Political decision-making, especially in regards to peace processes, is more inclusive of and accountable to the most excluded constituencies, which are able to influence and negotiate collectively with duty-bearers and power-holders in a context of adequate civic space and respect for human rights.
