Turkey's aid to Somalia: Risks and opportunities for peacebuilding

Turkey's growing aid budget made it the world's third largest humanitarian donor in 2013, with an increasing amount of this budget being focused on conflict-affected states.
Through a joint research project with Istanbul Policy Center we have explored what the implications of Turkish aid might be for peace and stability in Somalia. Our findings are presented in a new report, Turkish aid agencies in Somalia: Risks and opportunities for building peace, and summarised in a policy briefing Turkey and Somalia: Making aid work for peace.
Can peace be measured?

During last week's UN negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda in New York, member states not only discussed goals and targets, but also the subject of indicators for measuring global progress on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
Our new briefing, Measuring peace from 2015: An indicator framework at work, highlights how many issues related to Goal 16 are already being measured and lays out for discussion different models for a monitoring framework that would effectively measure global progress towards Goal 16.
Also read our comment piece, Measuring development: the importance of statistics on the post-2015 road to a better world, where Saferworld's Thomas Wheeler and Transparency International's Craig Fagan discuss the importance of statistics in a monitoring framework for Goal 16.
