Oxford Research Group (ORG) is an independent organisation that has been influential for over 35 years in pioneering new, more strategic approaches to security and peacebuilding. Based in London since 2006, ORG continues to pursue cutting edge research and advocacy in the United Kingdom and abroad while managing innovative peacebuilding projects in several Middle Eastern countries.
Its vision is of a world in which effective and sustainable measures are taken to transform conflicts, reduce violence and promote global cooperation.
Its mission is to promote approaches to defence, development and foreign policies that are inclusive, accountable, sustainable and effective. It thus works to transform the way that people and policy-makers think about security, seeking to break out of the cycle of conflict and violence.
