The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, IRC offers life-saving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in more than 40 countries and in 22 U.S. cities, IRC restores safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. IRC leads the way from harm to home.
 
Working in partnership with local civil society, government and private sector actors is fundamental to the International Rescue Committee’s mission to help people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future. Effective local partnerships are central to the IRC’s strategic ambitions in Strategy100, resulting in more effective, responsive and durable assistance that reaches more people and produces better outcomes for the people we serve. Investing in local civil society organizations (CSOs) and government entities recognizes those organizations not only as allies in achieving outcomes, but also as catalysts and drivers of change. The Partnership Excellence for Equality and Results System (the ‘PEER System’ or ‘PEERS’) is the IRC’s authoritative source of policy, process, guidance and tools for working in partnership.
