The vision of the CSVR is societies that are peaceful, equal and free of violence. The mission of the CSVR is to understand and prevent violence, heal its effects and build sustainable peace at community, national and regional levels. We do this through collaboration with and learning from the lived and diverse experiences of communities affected by violence and conflict to inform innovative interventions; generate knowledge; shape public discourse; influence policy; hold states accountable; promote gender equality; and promote social cohesion, integration and active citizenship.
