United States

The US is the largest spender on both foreign aid and defense, and its policies and actions shape peace and security around the world. It is important to propose evidence-based policy solutions that build peace and security. 

Our work

Saferworld USA works with the US Government and Congress, civil society and the media to create a deeper understanding of the factors causing violent conflict. Through panel discussions, training sessions and roundtables, our experts and partners from around the world cite the evidence and experience gained in our programmes in Myanmar, Somalia, South Sudan and Sudan. We also undertake programming and research to explore more effective directions for US policy on conflict and security issues, such as counterterrorism , aid effectiveness and support of civic space and social movements.

Saferworld USA is an affiliate of Saferworld Global, and the base for our US and UN advocacy work.

"To steer US policy in a new direction, they must be careful to avoid a narrow focus on battling ‘extremism’ at the expense of addressing the underlying human security and governance deficits that cause violence and state fragility."

Jason Calder, Saferworld USA Head of Office
