SEARCH FOR COMMON GROUND is the largest dedicated peacebuilding organization.
Since 1982, we have worked to end violent conflict and to build healthy, safe, and just societies all over the world. Currently, we work in 31 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America.
OUR MISSION is to transform the way the world deals with conflict, away from adversarial approaches and toward cooperative solutions.
WE BELIEVE that conflict is inevitable but violence is not. Conflict is a natural result of human diversity. When we deal with conflict adversarially, it generates polarization and violence. When we collaborate, conflict catalyzes positive change.
OUR VISION is a world where cooperation is the norm—where differences stimulate social progress, rather than precipitate violence.
Search is an international conflict transformation NGO that aims to transform the way individuals, groups, governments and companies deal with conflict, away from adversarial approaches and towards collaborative solutions. Headquartered in Washington DC, USA, and Brussels, Belgium, with 55 offices in 34 countries, Search designs and implements multifaceted, culturally appropriate and conflict-sensitive programs using a diverse range of tools, including media and training, to promote dialogue, increase knowledge and determine a positive shift in behaviors. Operating in Sudan since 2009, Search has developed and implemented innovative peacebuilding programs in collaboration with local Sudanese NGOs. Our work in Sudan seeks to empower women and other marginalized groups and encourage greater inclusivity in the peace processes and governance in Sudan.
Search in partnership with Um Serdiba Organization for Development, Badya Centre for Integrated Development Services, Cafa Development Organization, and Eve Center and Al Hareesat are implementing a 24-month project which emphasizes coalition-building –recognizing the high toll years of divisive politics, long-standing conflict, and political instability have had on women’s collaboration and relationships in peripheral states including South Kordofan, West Kordofan, and Blue Nile. Thus, the project is designed for women of various backgrounds to rebuild relationships and connections locally, across entrenched divides, and then to connect leaders in the targeted peripheral states and the power center in Khartoum to strengthen collective action. Recognizing the uncertainty at the national-level, this project prioritizes the inclusion of diverse male champions at the local-level. This builds on key successes and lessons learned from our previous and ongoing programming which has highlighted the importance of focusing on advancing peacebuilding and strengthening social cohesion at the local level, recognizing that this can often have the most impact on the day-to-day lives of conflict-affected communities especially in the face of national political uncertainty.
This study will mainly target Blue Nile (Gisan Baw and El-Rosiris localities), South Kordofan (Dilling and Habila), West Kordofan (Greater Lagawa), and Khartoum (to leverage Search’s connections to the national women’s groups).
