The Conflict Research Unit (CRU) at the Netherlands Institute of International Relations ‘Clingendael’ was founded in 1996.

Its work has a special though not exclusive emphasis on the developing world and aims at translating theoretical insights into practical policy recommendations, as well as developing tools for decision-makers in national and multilateral governmental and non-governmental organizations. Themes of research include: peace processes, gender and conflict, democratic transitions, Security Sector reform, disarmament processes, natural resources and conflict, economics of violence and discourse analysis. The CRU provides tailor-made policy research for (inter)national governmental and non-governmental agencies.

Heifer envisions a world of communities living together in peace and equitably sharing the resources of a healthy planet. Heifer’s mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and to care for the earth, by implementing the strategy of “pass on the gift.” As people share their animals’ offspring with others—along with their knowledge, resources, and skills—an expanding network of hope, dignity, and self-reliance is created that reaches around the globe. This simple idea of giving families a source of food rather than short-term relief caught on and has continued for over 60 years. Today, millions of families in 128 countries have been given the gifts of self-reliance and hope.
