After two decades of ground-breaking work in the field of faith-based peacebuilding, ICRD continues its leadership in making faith part of the solution to violence – implementing both traditional and innovative methodologies for understanding, preventing, and resolving conflicts around the world. We invite you to peruse the most recent account of our work – covering the Center’s past three years of service – now spanning seven countries on three continents. Get an inside look at ‘how we do what we do’ in some of the world’s most complex conflict environments – including those in Yemen, Pakistan, Colombia, Tunisia, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and Syria. Hear also from our Founder and President Emeritus, Dr. Douglas Johnston, and our new President & CEO, James Patton, under whose leadership we will continue to advance our vision of reconciliation between adversaries based on commonly shared religious values.
Report by Andrew McDonnell, Henry Burbridge and Dr. Yara Zgheib Salloum that summarizes the findings of ICRD’s recent field research in Yemen – presenting effective strategies for engaging conservative and typically excluded faith leaders in efforts to counter violent extremism (CVE). This report is one piece of a larger research effort that looks at how highly conservative (even exclusivist) religious communities can be integrated into future CVE policies and programming.
White Paper by Rebecca Cataldi, which provides an in-depth look at the approach and impact of ICRD field programming in Yemen. The program has successfully trained Yemeni religious and civil society leaders in conflict resolution and CVE skills, and supported them in community project implementation.
