What We Do

The Center for Peace, Conflict and Elections serves as a forum for research, analysis, programmatic service delivery and the exchange of ideas so as to enhance citizen self-actualization, well-being and progression. At the core of our strategies are System Design Thinking and Modeling and Effective Altruism. And through Cause Candidate Research and Analysis, CPCE has identified and selected the following key focus areas:

Strategic Peacebuilding

CPCE’s Strategic Peacebuilding is a sustained process at all strata of society that brings together individuals and groups at the grassroots with politicians and power brokers with the aim to create societies, institutions, policies, and relationships that are better suited to sustaining long-term peace and justice in Somalia. CPCE seeks to primarily research, develop and implement ideas and solutions for managing conflicts constructively.

Building Behavioural Change through System Design Thinking and Modelling

Through System Design Thinking and Modelling, we offer practical, sustainable and durable solutions. The system design thinking and modelling is essentially tailored to understand deep-rooted challenges, strategise, design and give an output to specific societal, program, entity, government and institutional needs in Somalia.

Durable Solutions for Refugees and IDPs in Somalia

Acknowledging that finding long-term solutions to forced displacement necessitates comprehensive institutional participation, CPCE attempts to identify long-term solutions for refugees and IDPs in Somalia through a multisectoral model and collaboration. CPCE strives to implement an evidence-based, multistakeholder, and inclusive strategy, as well as coordinated and methodical initiatives. CPCE particularly appreciates the existence of a formidable national strategy labeled “Building A Better Tomorrow” developed by the Durable Solutions Unit of the Ministry of Planning, Investment and Economic Development, Federal Government of Somalia – 2020-2024.

Climate Change and Green Earth

CPCE denotes that Somalia is subjected to a variety of climate extremes such as droughts, flash floods, unpredictable rainfall, increasing temperatures, cyclones, sandstorms, dust storms, and so on. The aforementioned issues are recurrent in nature and are indicative of the serious trend that climate extremes pose to people living in conflict zones.

Despite contributing only 0.08 percent of global emissions, Somalia is one of the world’s most susceptible countries to climate change (LSE, 2021). Fragility produced by conflict, instability, and political upheavals only exacerbates the challenges posed by climate change. CPCE strives to provide solutions to these challenges.

Somalia’s pastoral nature renders the nation very sensitive to the current and future effects of climate change. These climate variations increase rapidly in both frequency and intensity. Furthermore, the country’s susceptibility is exacerbated by the fact that it is coastal, low-lying, impoverished, and plagued by conflict. Somalia is also afflicted by environmental issues such as deforestation, overgrazing, soil erosion, and desertification. To that end, CPCE works to build Somalia’s capacities and develop programs to conserve Somalia’s fragile and severely deteriorated environmental resources.

Promotion of Democracy and Good Governance

CPCE strives to conduct public education, civic engagement, trainings, capacity building, media campaigns and outreach programs within Somalia that spearhead the promotion of good governance and democracy.

Supporting and Monitoring of Elections

CPCE supports state actors and civil society organizations, enhances the participation of women, youth, elders and citizenry on political processes, advocates for democratic reforms, transparency and accountability of institutions as well as election monitoring.

Research and Policy Analysis

Research to create policies, scientific research, advocacy on the themes of peace, security and elections, research publications, academic conferences and seminars and deliver policy advice to different stakeholders.
