Stabilisation Research Initiative

Over the past years, developments in the broader MENA region have emphasised the need to tackle the challenges of peacemaking and stabilisation efforts across the full conflict management cycle (from prevention to resolution).

A consensus has formed among governments, donors, development agencies and scholars alike, that, to be sustainable, any stabilisation programming needs an integrated, comprehensive approach. This means making use of the full spectrum of instruments of national power, thereby bringing together the dimensions of military stabilisation and security, with humanitarian and development objectives, economic recovery, good governance and justice and reconciliation.

With its Stabilisation Research Initiative (SRI), the Emirates Diplomatic Academy aims at increasing understanding of various aspects of stabilisation and conflict-resolution and at adding value to the broader debate on peace, stabilisation and conflict resolution efforts in the region.
