We believe in total inclusivity and promote the four freedoms: Freedom from want; freedom of expression; freedom of religion; and freedom from fear.
WILLIAM MORRIS, SECRETARY GENERAL
The NCF specialises in open and inclusive dialogue for peace. It is unique in its scope and ability to involve all parties in dialogue with the aim of conflict resolution. Our work is based on the principles of freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want and freedom from fear.
We offer ‘Flexible Crisis Response’
We foster environments where ‘understanding the other’ becomes possible
The NCF works primarily but not exclusively to support and host peace initiatives concerning the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia. It does occasionally work in other arenas as need arises, e.g. former Yugoslavia. The NCF is independent. Funders may determine projects but do not determine policy.
We are not an NGO in the traditional sense. We are a Foundation working on governments and sometimes with governments on strategies that foster peace, rapprochement and security. We cherish this difference. NCF is registered as a UN registered NGO, a not-for-profit with the IRS in the U.S. and a U.K registered charity.
