Elbarlament believes in the transformative power of culture and the arts as well as inclusive dialogue, especially in contexts of state fragility.

Through its work it aims to:

  • Promote peaceful coexistence between all groups in society
  • Foster democratic norms and practices
  • Support dialogue between civil society and political decision makers
  • Increase environmental awareness and contribute to mitigating climate change-related conflicts

Elbarlament follows a conflict-sensitive and gender transformative approach in supporting locally-owned reform agendas, combining arts-based tools for peacebuilding and civic education with more classical tools like technical assistance.
