The Conflict Analysis Network (CAN) is a recently established research and advocacy organisation dedicated to preventing and ending human rights abuses in situations of protracted conflict and violence.
By combining rigorous human rights documentation with conflict analysis, CAN provides unique insight not only into human rights abuses when they occur, but also their wider context.
Why choose us?
Thanks to our holistic approach of combining conflict analysis with human rights documentation we can offer concrete and practical solutions for change and present them to the people that matter.
CAN's team consists of experienced conflict and human rights researchers and international advocates. CAN's added value also lies within its network of experts in various fields, who help guide and contribute the organisation's work. This loose network allows CAN to provide clients with high-level expertise across a range of thematic and regional issues.
