Center for Operational Analysis and Research (COAR)
In 2018, a team of humanitarian affairs experts, conflict analysts, researchers, and program specialists established the Center for Operational Analysis and Research.
Having experienced the effects of contextual knowledge gaps within the protracted humanitarian and stabilization response to Syria, COAR’s founding members concluded that a new approach was necessary.
COAR is an independent social enterprise that supports the international community to navigate and adapt policy, programs, and projects to emerging and progressively complex, fragile, and high-risk environments. At COAR, we develop conflict-sensitive, sustainable, and adaptable solutions using boutique, real-time, and long-term contextual analysis and research.
COAR leverages social media, individual networks, field research teams, and country-specific expertise to gather and translate information into actionable decisions.
Based on direct access to affected populations and a deep understanding of their respective political, economic, social, security, and environmental systems and stakeholders, COAR builds a blueprint for humanitarian, stabilization, early recovery, social-cohesion, resilience and development-focused interventionsSee more
