The goal of Interpeace’s Constitution-Making for Peace Programme is to support constitution-making processes that lead to a more durable peace. To further its goals, the programme promotes the principles of national ownership, inclusion (including gender equality), participation and transparency. It underscores options for the process that lead to national dialogue, consensus-building, greater social and political cohesion, conflict management, reconciliation and the strengthening of democratic principles and institutions and the rule of law. We do this by:
- Supporting local actors to promote, design and implement participatory and inclusive constitution-making processes.
- Supporting policies that promote our programme goals, including the development of the UN Secretary-General’s Note on Constitutional Assistance.
- Developing guidance and knowledge tools.
- Developing networks and communities of practice.
