Ripple advances effectiveness in the work of Just Peace, both within organizations and across wide-ranging communities of practice. Consistent themes include shifting power to local leaders and building bridges of understanding between faith-inspired practitioners and their secular partners. Our partners say Ripple strengthens both programs and results.

Sample projects:

  • Outcome Harvest-based research on the contribution of civil society advocacy to strengthen the social contract in six highly fragile, conflict-affected contexts, including foci on Women, Peace & Security, gender-based violence and extractive industries in South Sudan (with Cordaid).
  • Synthesis report and consultancy team leadership for case study series on intercultural and interreligious dialog and collaboration in Nigeria, Myanmar, the Middle East and Europe (with KAICIID Dialogue Centre).
  • Case study on success factors in collective impact through peace advocacy networks (with Mindanao Peaceweavers and CDA Collaborative Learning Projects).
  • Research and advisory on opportunities, risks and mitigation for faith-based organizations who are considering initiatives that aim to prevent violent extremism in the USA and globally (with multiple partners).
