“This has been a really creative and interesting time for us to think through what kind of peacebuilding we can do in the midst of the global pandemic. We’ve been in touch with all of our partners and stakeholders, and had incredible conversations and reflections, challenging ourselves to think about what does the future bring, and equally what parts of the way we worked in the past we like to leave behind us.”

The Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPCS) has adapted our approach to peacebuilding to adjust to the “online” world we currently all live in. In consultation with our colleagues and partners, and reflecting in our teams on what this experience has been like, CPCS has identified key lessons learned, principles, and tips for peacebuilding online, captured in a series of learning papers to answer the question: What happens when peacebuilders go “online”?
