swisspeace implemented several activities during the 2014 Swiss chairmanship of the OSCE
The northern part of Kosovo remains geographically, institutionally and socially divided. Northern Kosovo is still functioning in many respects as part of Serbia. Swisspeace implemented a dialog project from 2012 to 2014, which was funded by the Human Security Division of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs.
The Humanitarian Dialogue in the North Caucasus (HDNC) was implemented by swisspeace and its local partner organizations Peace Mission of General Lebed (PMGL) based in Pyatigorsk, and the Forum for Early Warning and Early Response (FEWER-Eurasia) in Moscow between 2006 and 2013.
swisspeace implemented the BEFORE Project - Preventing Political Violence in Guinea and in Guinea Buissau from 2005 to 2013.
Swisspeace was a member of the Swiss National Center of Competence in Research North-South between 2001 and 2013. NCCR North-South was an international and interdisciplinary network of academics and research institutes promoting research partnerships with students and institutes in the South.
Swisspeace's contribution to the Global Monitoring for Security and Stability (GMOSS) aimed at estimating conflict risks in monitored countries. The goal of the project, which was operational from 2004 - 2008, was to communicate conflict relevant information and gain a better understanding of spatial conflict dynamics.
Our early warning program FAST International, which was operational from 1998-2008, covered 25 countries or regions in Africa, Asia and Europe. Our work aimed at enhancing the ability of decision makers and their staff in state and non-state institutions to identify critical developments in a timely manner so that coherent political strategies could be formulated to either prevent or limit destructive effects of violent conflicts, or to identify windows of opportunity for peacebuilding.
