Mandate for the Swiss FDFA and the UK government , 2016-2017
Joint Analysis of Conflict and Stability (JACS) in Mozambique
The mandate, conducted jointly by swisspeace and an independent consultant, entailed a thorough strategic level analysis of conflict and insecurity in Mozambique with a focus on the Renamo-Frelimo conflict, organized crime, and violent extremism. The conflict analysis will be followed by a portfolio analysis of the Swiss and UK development programs in Mozambique. Together, these analyses helped to inform and advise the UK and Swiss development cooperation to contribute to stability, resilience and peace in the country. Capacity building events further buttressed this endeavor.

Knowledge for peace. Understanding research, policy and practice synergies
The research project “Knowledge for Peace. Understanding research, policy and practice synergies” aims to improve peacebuilding practice by looking at how research and knowledge about peace and its components are generated and how the politics of knowledge production impact policy making. The project focuses on transitional justice processes in Côte d’Ivoire, South Sudan and Mozambique. It is conducted by swisspeace, the University of Juba and the "Centre Suisse de Recherches Scientifiques en Côte d’Ivoire". The project is part of the “research for development program” (r4d) managed by the Swiss National Science Foundation and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). Website
