PEACS is a small political economy consultancy, aspiring to increase the knowledge flow between theory and practice.
We want to improve how organisations and policymakers understand and deal with their environment, helping our clients to navigate difficult situations better.
Our focus & offer
We are a social enterprise, specialised in research, consulting and training in political economy themes and methods
We provide our clients with analytical tools and substantive insights that support strategic decisions in the ‘real world’ of organisational and policy adjustment
We focus on institutional background conditions that shape transformation processes and the success or failure of policies and business strategies
Our experience makes us valuable knowledge partners for public and private organisations, interest groups and NGOs
Our principles & aspirations
Equality, non-discrimination and social and environmental sustainability are the principles that inspire our work
We aim to create a community of policy makers, academics, businesses, and interest groups to evaluate questions and proposals from society
We contribute to open collective knowledge through our work and our pro bono contributions such as blog posts and op-eds
