Abstract

This paper focuses on the role of International Alert in promoting early warning and early action in areas of international conflict. It begins by introducing the percepts of preventive diplomacy as used by International Alert. A number of the organisation's objectives and activities are highlighted, showing the many ways in which the principles of conflict prevention and early warning are being developed in areas of potential violence and amongst a wider interdisciplinary audience. In conclusion, the main aims of International Alert and our objective to create a global network with different sectors of the international community and to motivate the creation of a non-military early action mechanism to prevent the escalation of violent conflict are presented.
