Given the Centre’s comprehensive and long-term approach towards imbibing human security framework in resolving conflicts, it has begun with a two-three year “internal capacity building period” in which only a relatively smaller presence will be established in New Delhi, India. This stage would enable the Centre to intensively work on undertaking and promoting impartial research initiatives, along with building trusted relationships on the ground with like-minded individuals and institutions, that are interested and/or are already working with similar models, for potential future partnerships all around the country and in the South Asian region.
At the same time, it would engage in establishing a knowledge centre that will encourage compiling and maintaining of pertinent and cross-cutting information on human security. This stage is vital in order to strengthen the Centre’s position in providing substantive, unbiased facts and findings and widespread networking and collaborative opportunities to the beneficiaries.
When the Centre will develop adequate resource base and competencies, it will then expand itself into a full office and establish regional presence in different locations inside and outside India to implement its varied activities. In doing so, the Centre will enhance its relationships with other partners to lobby and advocate alternate policies and approaches that are peaceful and sustainable.
