Stabilization and Peacebuilding: Understanding Dynamic Processes and Making Them Work
January 31, 2011 - February 4, 2011
U.S. Institute for Peace,
A hands on course that provides students with principles for organizing and implementing integrated responses to peace and stability operations. The course uses “The 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) from documentation and lessons learned from international experiences and the full-range of institutions engaged in peacebuilding missions (NGOs, IOs, civilian governments, defense).
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, rule of law, stable governance, sustainable economy and social well-being. Students 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, students, 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.
