The Dialogue Advisory Group (DAG) is an independent organisation that facilitates political dialogue to reduce violence. We create or advance political dialogues between armed groups, governments and international organisations in conflict situations.

DAG works on critical parts of wider peace processes – particularly in situations of emerging or protracted conflicts. These include political understanding, ceasefires and disarmament, and accountability. DAG also helps international organisations and states in engaging armed groups where there are political, practical or diplomatic limitations to doing so. As a small organisation with a light footprint in countries where it operates, DAG is able to take on challenging tasks that others may not be ready to undertake.
