The DEEP Network has established nodes (local action groups) in cities around the world. Working collaboratively, the DEEP Network:
- Organizes intercultural dialogue, elicitive conflict transformation, and peace building projects in partnership with marginalized communities.
- Undertakes research that enhances understanding of conflict and peace practices and leads to innovative policies and programs.
- Conducts training and education geared towards capacity building for individuals, organizations and communities in dialogue, conflict transformation, and peace work.
- Liaises with other institutes to continually add depth and breadth to our understanding and activism.
- Builds a global network for change.

Several of the DEEP activities and projects are carried out in partnership with other organizations with similar vision and values. These organizations include:
- Global Reconciliation. Global Reconciliation is an ambitious and innovative, Australian-initiated network of people and organisations around the world seeking to research and promote ‘reconciliation’ – that is, dialogue and practical engagements across cultural, religious, racial and other differences. It has conducted international conferences and initiated collaborative projects in more than 50 countries. Its partners include government and non-government organisations, academic institutions, professional associations and community based groups.
- Thoughtbox Education. Founded and directed by Rachel Musson, a DEEP member based in the UK, ThoughtBox is a curriculum for secondary schools, encouraging critical thinking, empathy and unlearning. Adaptable for a range of lesson timings and abilities, ThoughtBox promotes Global Citizenship throughout our lesson plans and resources, teaching students how (rather than what) to think. Each month, a new ThoughtBox is opened (with twelve global topics over the course of the year) providing a selection of lesson plans across a range of timings and age-groups. The aims and objectives of a ThoughtBox education are not to find answers but to ask questions, encouraging students to think outside of the box and develop skills of tolerance and empathy.
