17 Conflict-Intervening Social Businesses

From Peace Pillows to Altruistic Apprenticeships

— April 18, 2014 — Social Good
This top list of conflict-intervening social businesses is fairly wide-ranging. On the one hand, it not only includes "conflict-free" products such as the very popular 'peaceBOMB' bracelets but also awareness campaigns such as the recently added profile of Congo Calling, an attempt to stop illegal mining and create an industry for fair trade cell phones. On the other hand, the very idea of conflict isn't necessarily so large in terms of international scope. For instance, SocialBusiness.org included here a London-based social enterprise called Capital Conflict Mining which attempts to fight crime, especially when it comes to gun and knife violence.

Conflict-intervening social businesses are an entrepreneurial approach to international development and relations but also serve more domestic purposes when it comes to curbing violence especially.
