New Publication: An Ethnographic Approach to Peacebuilding: Understanding Local Experiences in Transitional States

This book aims to outline and promote an ethnographic approach to evaluating international peacebuilding interventions in transitional states.While the evaluation of peacebuilding and transitional justice efforts has been a growing concern in recent years, too often evaluations assess projects based on locally irrelevant measures, reinforce the status quo distribution of power in transitional situations, and uncritically accept the implicit conceptions of the funders, planners, and…See More

Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I'm an Irish citizen now living in Scotland and teaching at the University of Aberdeen. My research concerns post-conflict peacebuilding, development, and justice and I have focused primarily on the case of Sierra Leone over the past seven years. I teach courses on conflict, conflict resolution, and peacebuilding, and in the Spring of 2014 will start a new Masters program in Post-Conflict Justice and Peacebuilding.

I'm very interested in all aspects of conflict resolution and strive to bring an interdisciplinary perspective to my work. To that end I am very much interested in theory from all of the social sciences but most specifically Political Science, Sociology, Anthropology, and Psychology.

This post was originally posted at http://conflictandcollaboration.wordpress.com/ on April 2nd, 2011.

 

I write these words on April 2nd 2011, after watching news of the death of Osama Bin Laden on the morning news shows. In those reports I saw images of jubilant crowds outside the Whitehouse and in the streets of New York. After almost 10 years of violence, the application of U.S. military force, and the…

Hello.

I hope to open a line of communication with you. It seems we share some common interests so I wanted to make my introduction. I'm Chris from New Orleans. I'm studying Comparative legal systems at Tulane Law School and am very interested in Human Rights and Mediation and Negotiation. Given our common interests this might be a good to start to communication so we can refer to each other in the future. Please take a minute to view my page and leave a message if you like.

peace.
