LPI believes that accountability, transparency and trust towards the Institute’s partners in the field and its donors are instrumental for the Institute’s work. LPI does not transform conflicts by itself. Rather, it is accountable towards its partners to provide them with tools and knowledge to be able to analyse the conflicts in their area and to play an active role in their transformation.

To promote transparency and build trust with our partners, LPI uses a list of criteria for partner selection, sign specific Memoranda of Understanding with each partner and ensure ongoing discussion at all steps in the programme cycle to create a shared vision and ownership throughout the process. In regard to donors, besides meeting the formal reporting requirements, LPI adheres to professional standards in its management of administration and finances, and utilises both administrative and financial manuals.
