How we can work together
The proliferation of peacebuilding initiatives worldwide has yet to be matched by research into this work. We believe that collaboration between researchers, academics and practitioners can increase the effectiveness of peacebuilding. We wish to facilitate that process.
For assistance with your research, please contact Ruairi Nolan, Insight on Conflict Project Manager, on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone UK + (0)207 549 0285.
Landry Ninteretse helped Laura from the UK find a peacebuilding organisation in Burundi to research and work with:
“You have actually been a great help to me, since I didn’t know which organisation to approach regarding my field of research, but also because I didn’t have accurate information about the situation in Burundi. In sum, the information you provided on the current situation was indispensable for my choice of location and the feasibility of my research. The organisation you have guided me towards, the Centre Jeunes Kamenge, is actually the ideal place to stay and work regarding my research on youth perspectives; it is a very friendly and great environment in the middle of the ‘quartiers’ of my interest. Moreover, the information on the current situation, but also your enthusiasm of my upcoming visit, actually made me go through with my research (even though many people advised me not to go!). So I would say you have been a crucial advisor to me!”
