Mission Statement

Bridging religious considerations with the practice of international politics in support of peacemaking.

Description

Religious convictions are a principal source of values for nearly 85% of the global community. As such, they can be a significant factor in promoting divisiveness and enmity-or in building the trust needed to overcome the conditions driving violent conflict. Because the influence of religious, ethnic and tribal identities is frequently stronger than that of governments, the challenge of resolving conflict and violent religious extremism (VRE) often exceeds the reach of traditional diplomatic or military intervention. ICRD addresses this reality by employing a unique range of capabilities that effectively engage the belief systems and core values found at the heart of identity-­‐based conflicts. It also maximizes programmatic impact by integrating its work with other peacemaking efforts, particularly those of governments.
