Research

Research at CSVR fulfils three key functions:

Evidence-based advocacy

Our research supports evidence-based advocacy and intervention work, ensuring that our engagement with communities, clients and stakeholders is based on an informed understanding of key issues and challenges.

Supports the communities

Our research supports the communities where we work to articulate their understandings and priorities in relation to the issues that CSVR addresses.

Informs national public

Our research informs national public debate, critical policy dialogues and international discourse on issues of violence and sustainable peace.

CSVR research is both externally focused (documenting and analysing conflict and designing initiatives to address these problems) and internally focused (reflecting on our own practice and documenting what we have learned from our work).
