Cord
: Cord – Peace through Partnership

Cord is an international NGO with administrative headquarters in the United Kingdom and operational staff teams in Africa and Asia. Cord responded to the Cambodian refugee crisis in 1975, working in the refugee camps and supporting their repatriation from Thailand and Cambodia. It has been operational in Cambodia since 1989 and in 1998 began the localisation of its programmes to a national NGO. Cord’s focus in South & East Asia is on developing the capacity of civil society through building long-term partnerships around the challenges of livelihoods, peacebuilding and education, and the cross-cutting issues of HIV and AIDS, Gender Equality and the Environment. Countries of focus in East Asia are Burma/Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos PDR.  Cord is working with TISCO to both develop new tools and test existing tools that are being used by commune councilors throughout Cambodia to resolve conflict.  In particular, Cord will be looking at the UNDP Access to Justice project and the community members’ experience of receiving solutions to their justice problems.  Cord will build on its expertise in nonviolent conflict resolution and its experience with commune councilors to guide this project.  Cord hopes to incorporate the findings from the research to share with its partners in the course of its ongoing capacity development initiatives and its experience with commune councilors to guide this project.  Cord hopes to incorporate the findings from the research to share with its partners in the course of its ongoing capacity development initiatives.”
