Global Governance and Local Peace: Accountability and Performance in International Peacebuilding
On 6 May, the Platform will host Susanna Campbell in The Hague to present her new, incisive book Global Governance and Local Peace: Accountability and Performance in International Peacebuilding.
In the book, Campbell examines the relationships between peacebuilding organizations, their country offices, and local actors. Country offices play a central role in forging peace in conflict-affected societies, but must continually balance their (competing) accountability to their organizations, donors and local stakeholders. How country offices manage to strike this balance defines whether and how much they learn about what it takes to build peace in their context. Through in-depth examination of the day-to-day machinations of organizations and individuals working to resolve violent conflicts and foster peaceful societies, Campbell arrives at useful practical recommendations for all involved in peacebuilding efforts.
Join us on 6 May – we welcome your input and would value your insights during the facilitated discussion after Prof. Campbell’s presentation.
