ECAS is a highly networked consultancy that brings together over 25 recognised experts to implement assignments on the conflict, security, and investment nexus. We work in five service areas; armed violence reduction, corporate issues, stabilization and prevention, training, and analysis and evaluation in conflict-affected and fragile countries.
Our experts are selected not only for their qualifications and experience, but also on their track-record in delivering well to clients – and their ability to work with others. Fundamentally, we are a group of hands-on, unpretentious experts who enjoy our work.
Since our establishment in 2003, we have implemented over 200 assignments in over 30 conflict-affected/fragile areas. In countries where we have repeat assignments, we develop three types of networks: strong field networks that help us ground-truth our work, national technical networks and partnerships with solid local experts, and political networks. These help us deliver on difficult assignments and give us insider perspectives that are critical for the work we do.
As one of a group of regional consulting companies, our experts and networks are in the pan-European space, as well as in North Africa and the Middle East. Together with our sister companies, WACAS and ACAS, our joint capabilities extend to Africa and Asia. As such, you will find us working effectively in many non-European contexts. Over 80% of our work is through word-of-mouth – and we only occasionally bid for assignments that are of particular interest to us.
