Policy, Education and Research Rooted in open-minded inquiry on the nexus between development, governance and security, we conduct in-depth research and analysis of critical, yet underexplored issues that support rehabilitation, reintegration, peaceful co-existence and social cohesion in communities affected by conflict. Neem Foundation has partnered with several state and non-state actors to guide, support and drive policy initiatives in the field of PVE.
We believe that using our research and context specific initiatives to inform policy can assist the development of effective PVE interventions. Such interventions include our education initiatives that are geared towards child development and promoting peaceful co-existence by raising the standard of teaching and empowering children with logical reasoning and critical thinking skills. We also seek to improve the quality of discourse on preventing violent extremism and provide a platform for knowledge sharing among key stakeholders in the space, with a view to enhancing existing practices and implementing effective interventions.
From developing briefs on Tsangaya Education Reform to designing an Operational Peace Framework in the North East and creating a Reintegration Optimization Index, our research findings have informed innovative and actionable policy recommendations as well as evidence- based programmes in the field of peacebuilding.
