Initiative on Quiet Diplomacy - IQd
The Initiative on Quiet Diplomacy (IQd) seeks to address the root and proximate causes of violent conflict—before they escalate into violence—by helping develop institutions in regional, sub-regional and other inter-governmental organisations, providing key actors with tools and techniques to identify, assess and respond to recurring issues in conflict situations, and supporting and facilitating dialogue and mediation processes.
IQd brings normative and security perspectives to the development of effective institutions at inter-governmental, national and local levels to help peacefully mediate the differences that can lead to tensions in any diverse society. IQd is working to achieve a just and stable world without violent conflict, in which individuals and groups can peacefully reconcile their interests, enjoy their rights, satisfy their needs, and pursue social and economic development.
