Stabilization and Peacebuilding: Understanding Dynamic Processes and Making Them Work
Photo Credit: The New York Times

A hands-on course that provides participants with principles for organizing and implementing integrated responses to peace and stability operations. The course uses Guiding Principles for Stabilization and Reconstruction, developed jointly by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and the U.S. Army Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute (PKSOI). These principles were developed from lessons learned from international experiences and the full-range of institutions engaged in peacebuilding missions (non-governmental organizations, international organizations, civilian government agencies, and the military). These principles provide a framework for organizing and implementing integrated responses to achieve desired end-states. These end-states include: a safe and secure environment, the rule of law, stable governance, a sustainable economy, and social well-being. Participants will learn the ultimate goals of stabilization and peacebuilding actors across institutions, and how their individual contributions support larger, comprehensive efforts. In this five-day course, participants, from diverse institutions, will develop integrated plans for critical issues in small groups exercises, and will jointly explore, in group discussion, past and present case studies that offer guidelines for success.
