MCDC - Understand to Prevent

Engi is co-leading the second phase of this project - nicknamed 'U2P2' - during 2015-16, focusing on the practical challenges of how best to involve military forces in the prevention of violent conflict. 

The core document (see sidebar), co-written by Engi, provides the basis for the multinational, multi-disciplinary team that is taking the project from concept to pilot stage, to produce generic guidelines. Download a copy of Understand to Prevent here.


The recent crisis in the Middle East has resulted in broad social and economic challenges both for the Syrian and for the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.  The social and economic implications are extensive and are visible in day-to-day life across the country.  Engi is working on a number of initiatives to address the tensions within and outside of the camps, between different groups of refugees and the host community on the following areas:

  • Skills based training for men and women
  • Improving communication to promote non-violent solutions
  • Advocacy support to raise public awareness
  • Dialogue building within the camps and between refugee and host population
  • Capacity building for grassroots organisations

Further details to follow.


The PARTICIPATORY PEACEMAKING INITIATIVE aims to create opportunities for senior political and civic leaders of the two communities in Cyprus to discuss their role in the peace negotiations. Read More
