Building Peace


Building Infrastructures for Peace

This research project will systematically interview and catalog lessons learned from the United Nations Peace and Development Advisors (PDAs). These UN officials typically work in conflict-affected countries right at the intersection between conflict dynamics and development challenges such as structural inequality or chronic poverty.


This will be a collaborative research effort with the International Peace Institute in New York, with assistance from the United Nations Development Program and the UN Department of Political Affairs.
