Institute for Integrated Transitions
The Institute for Integrated Transitions (IFIT) is a new international initiative. It is the first nongovernmental organisation dedicated to the integration of policymaking in the areas of democracy, development, rule of law and security in periods of political transition in fragile and conflict-affected states.
IFIT's aim is to help national transitions in fragile and conflict-affected states succeed by serving as an expert resource for locally-led efforts to establish improved political, economic and social conditions that can in turn ensure human dignity and help reduce the recurrence of authoritarianism or civil war. Through its global work, IFIT will aim to help transform current practice away from piecemeal interventions and toward comprehensive solutions that eliminate the violence that undermines democracy, development, rule of law and security in fragile and conflict-affected states.
