Delivering sustainable reform in fragile and conflict-affected states

Aktis is grounded in the belief that by bringing together the right combination of thinking and systems, delivered by the best people, it is possible to bring about more impactful, sustainable reform in fragile and conflict-affected states.

Our origins


Aktis was established in 2013 with the goal of providing high-quality solutions to the problems our clients face in the fields of security, justice, institutional development and conflict management in fragile and conflict-affected states. Since then, Aktis has rapidly become a trusted partner for clients seeking to design, implement and evaluate complex programmes in conditions of conflict or instability. Starting as a team of six, Aktis has grown to over 120 people, based in our UK headquarters and our regional offices in Lebanon, Tunisia, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Turkey and Eastern Europe.


To deliver our vision, Aktis will continue to grow and develop, driven by the commitment of our people to play their part in tackling some of the world’s most pressing security and development challenges.
