What Others are Saying about the PCDN Network (Add your Own Comments)

The Peace and Collaborative Development Network is an open source for networking, resources, and exploring the fields of peacebuilding, conflict resolution, development, human rights, and more. We are constantly developing the site and also seeking feedback on how the site may have impacted you. Below please find feedback from some members. To see additional feedback and make your own comments, visit the feedback discussion. FEEDBACK ON THE NETWORK ___________________________________________

APSIA brings together the leading graduate schools around the world, which specialize in multidisciplinary, professional international affairs education. Being a part of PCDN helps us to share information on our in-person and virtual recruitment events. It also provides access to information about jobs, internships, and other opportunities for us, which we can share with students at our member and affiliate schools.  Carmen Iezzi MEZZERA Executive Director, Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs


Dr. Victoria Fontan, Associate Professor, Head, Department of Peace and Conflict Studies, University for Peace

What I like the most about this network is its diversity. Not one person, institution, or epistemology, ranks above others due to geography. PCDN has kept me informed, allowed me to voice some opinions, and most importantly, has allowed me to carry out two successful job searches in the past two years. The quality and diversity of candidates that applied to work in my department has just been outstanding. Before posting my job advertisement to PCDN, I had a handful of serious applications. PCDN increased the application numbers by more than 400%. The diversity of the candidates allowed me to interview qualified candidates from all over the world, hence reflecting in my department the diversity of our student population at UPEACE. I find PCDN to be an invaluable job search resource. 


Cameron Chisholm, President International Peace & Security Institute, DC PCDN is a crucial tool for any organization seeking to communicate and collaborate directly with the global peace community.  The impact that the International Peace & Security Institute (IPSI) achieved through our trainings and publications in the last year has been multiplied many times over by utilizing the incredible networking power of the PCDN.  No other new technology or social networking site even compares to the PCDN, and we, as the global peacebuilding community, are hugely indebted to the site founder for having the vision and passion to unite us under the PCDN banner.         ____________________________________________

Scott Beale, Founder & CEO, Atlas Corps

PCDN is vital to the work of Atlas Corps as we recruit professionals from around the world. It has also become a network builder as the majority of our Fellows use PCDN to forward their long-term professional goals. Since Atlas Corps started in 2006, PCDN has helped us reach more than 130 countries as we receive on average 500 to 1,000 applications a month. 


Jose Zalaquet, Head of the MOOC Chile Project. Lawyer, Universidad de Chile.

PCDN has been a tremendous resource in our recruiting for our online course on Human Rights Education. In fact PCDN was the third largest source of Traffic to our site after Amnesty International and the Chilean Museum of History. ____________________________________________

Libby & Len Traubman, Co-founders, Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogue PCDN is our very best resource to discover partners for creating a world beyond war. It’s the world’s finest gathering place to find colleagues, tools, social science, human experience, learning opportunities, and employment on the road to creating together a global learning-community that works for all and excludes no one.


Meeghan Zahorsky, Associate Consultant, Vera Solutions – PCDN played a key role in our hiring process, allowing us to connect with and hire an excellent candidate. When it comes to peacebuilding and development, PCDN is the most comprehensive network and resource that we as practitioners have at our fingertips.


Emily A. Mallozzi, Membership & Operations Manager, Alliance for Peacebuilding The Peace and Collaborative Development Network (PCDN) is an essential tool for professional peacebuilders worldwide, and serves an important function for the peacebuilding and conflict resolution fields. As the institutional home for the peacebuilding community, the Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP)knows that many AfP members utilize PCDN as a source of information pertaining to current events, networking, jobs, new research, and more. As a valuable tool for individuals, PCDN complements AfP’s own work to advance the field of peacebuilding through innovative programming and policymaker education. PCDN’s value can be measured in the sheer volume of information that is generated throughout its network, and is a service we as peacebuilders should all be investing in.


Manmeet Mehta, Sr. Program Manager, Crowdsourcing Social Innovation & New Partnerships, GlobalGiving

GlobalGiving is thrilled with the launch of a Strategic Partnership with Peace and Collaborative Development Network. PCDN is an invaluable resource for civil society organizations seeking to network and stay informed on key opportunities in fundraising and capacity building.  Recently, this partnership has resulted in more than 74 entrepreneurial organizations to connect to potential opportunities for funding and expanding networks on the GlobalGiving platform. ______________________________________________

Dr. Jacob Bercovitch, Professor of International Relations,University of Canterbury, New Zealand Web sites on conflict, as indeed on any other aspect of human endeavor, have proliferated in the last few years. So much so, that at times one is left all too bewildered by the vast array of possible sources on what is new in the field of conflict. To my mind, one web site truly stands above all others, and that is the Peace and Development Network. This site offers the most comprehensive information on what is happening in the discipline, on new books, new sources of funding, and new fellowships. In fact it offers information on just about every aspect of conflict. It is also wonderfully interdisciplinary. It will appeal to the scholar, practitioner and students of psychology as well as those from history, political science and sociology. It is well organized, it has a great number of features that make it user friendly. It brings you into contact with like minded people in every part of the world. I have learned a lot from it, and I daresay so will others. It is a wonderful and comprehensive resource. I urge you to use it, and do so now __________________________________________ Tim Hicks, Director, Master’s degree program in Conflict and Dispute Resolution, University of Oregon The primary benefit to me has been as a source of information on a wide range of current activities, publications, initiatives, jobs, etc. related to the fields of peace and conflict resolution. In addition to helping me keep informed, some of the information is of direct use for our students. Secondarily, and equally as important, I think that the networking, linkages, and community-building that the network can foster is of great service. ____________________________________________ Professor Fred Dubee, Senior Advisor, UN Global Compact First a note of admiration and appreciation. It is impossible to estimate the importance and value of participating in the Peace and Collaborative Development Network. Personally I find the new research and new information the most valuable to my work as a student, explorer, researcher, writer and teacher. But even more important is the rich information, insights and opportunities I can share with others in the various networks that have accepted me as a participant. _____________________________________________ Fabian Schuttenberg, Academy for Conflict Transformation, Germany We are a training institution offering courses and trainings for civil peace service personnel. Located in Bonn, we are quite well known in Germany and some neighbouring countries. Being a member of the network helps us, to inform peace workers, scholars, and other interested people abroad about our institution and our offers who would usually be hard to reach for us. In that way, the network creates benefits not only for us but also for those interested in acquiring practical skills for conflict transformation. _____________________________________________ Dr. Carolyne Ashton, Senior Research Assoc., Inst. Learning Team Search for Common Ground, Washington, DC I have found the site very useful for keeping up with what is going on in the field. I especially appreciate that things come my way on this site that I would never have thought of looking into, e.g., manuals and some topics that are outside of my direct work area. As the editor of an internal newsletter for Search for Common Ground staff, I highlight, in the newsletter, the announcements that are particularly related to our work in media, youth, governance, etc. I do not have a way of tracking if anyone follows up on them, but staff often thank me for including a specific one of interest to them. I have also encouraged our staff around the world to join the site, and many have. _____________________________________________ John Aaron, CEO, CHALK4PEACE I run CHALK4PEACE, the global chalk art project for peace that takes place every fall. The Peace and Collaborative Development Network has time and time again provided much needed information, networks, available grants and contacts that have clearly assisted us in our efforts to reach out to the world about peace. Thanks to the Peace and Collaborative Development Network, we are rising rapidly as a significant program of global Peace through Art. This network, for anypeace minded person or organization, should be considered invaluable.

_______________________________________________ Cheryl Duckworth, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, NOVA Southeastern University The Peace and Collaborative Development Network is essential. It is the most multi-sector and international network I have yet come across. Being a member has enabled me to connect with resources, research and, most importantly, colleagues worldwide. It is applicable to any sector of peace building, from peace education to non-proliferation. I visit at least several times a week to find new discussions, publications and projects in the field. ________________________________________________ Maria Lucia Zapata, Balsillie Fellow, Ph.D. Candidate, Balsillie School of International Affairs Wilfrid Laurier University, Canada The Network is an important tool for any person -newcomer or professional- interested in peacebuilding, human rights and development. The network is constantly sending information about scholarships, reports, discussions, events, training and news around the globe. etc. It has allowed me to meet new colleagues in the field, and to access information (reports, videos) that otherwise I wouldn’t be able to find. I personally recommend this network to friends and colleagues, not only because it is a good network, but because it is trustworthy. _________________________________________________ Ping Ping Worakate, Project Coordinator, Peace Revolution, Thailand Like Peace Revolution, this network is a very significant platform where we meet like-minded peace activists from around the world. Knowing such key persons from different organizations helps in networking to a much wider and deeper level. Also, the immense source of information such as peace events, fellowships, grants, or updated news give us insightful perspective of what going-on in the world. This is truly an amazing hub of peace activists and educators who are prompt to react to the fast changing environment. __________________________________________________

If money were to give me up-to date informations/ assess to publications,current activities, initiatives, trainings, events and even materials for my intellectual and professional development related to the field of peace and conflict resolution i will never be able to buy them.

Because of the Peace and Collaborative Development Network, I don’t have to worry about where I can look up any information about peace and conflict, career and other related resources. It is the best online network I have subscribed to since I started involvement with online forums. I cannot thank Dr. Craig Zelizer enough, he is doing an excellent job. Through this network, I have learnt to establish my stamina on peace and conflict issues from varied perspectives, this, I find so rewarding to my career. The resources are detailed and meant to cater for people that are heading to the same destination using different routes. I visit this site everyday, and I always looking forward to reading from Dr. Zelizer.

Peace and Collaborative Development Network ( PCDN ) makes networking work.PCDN at its best a dynamic, creative process that is so efficient that everything to me appears effortless. The hard work , careful planning and management has created PCDN a well run network.To me it is a great resource of information transmission and many a times it helped me to communicate with others for social change.Knowledge alone does not change but sharing the knowledge through building up the networking could be a key factor for change.
I represent the organization Drik India which is the overseas branch of award winning media agency and social entrepreneur based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Our motif is’ Images for Change’ and we create images, develop information and communicate with the world. PCDN is an addendum to our network. I always await PCDN’s posting which many a times act as a food for thought.
I wish its emergence at all levels at rapid speed.

Peace and Collaborative Development network is an amazing network that any one interested in peace work and/or studyu can benefit of a great deal. It provides a great deal of useful information and resources. I was able to learn about tdifferent aspects of the field through reading many blogs and articles contributed by members and it gave me a large amount of knowledge. Through the network, i was also able to learn about different periodicals, magazines and reports about peace and conflict resolution in different parts of the world. For me, the network is the single best resource to get up-to-date information on peace-related issues.
I only suggest – if it is possible- to create a section on the network where up-to-date books and book reviews on the field are added.

Human development is very fundamental in achieving lasting peace within ourselves extending to the environment. The network provides lots of opportunities for individual development educationally or simple exposure. For South Africans, getting exposed to the outside world is still a big challenge. Xenophobic attacks which come up from time to time are a result of years isolation and lack of understanding that South Africa is part of Global World whether Third world town in Latin America or First World City in Europe. so there is an need to behave accordingly.
The Network allows development by continuously presenting opportunities for discussions, studying or vising and working in another country

Thanks to Craig Zelizer for this wonderful endeavor.What he is doing is more than he should.We have also responsibility to promote this website on the premise and belief that the greatness of humanity lies in seeking common human benefit in line with individual benefit.


The network is just great! I am impressed by the level of activity and the many “offers” that turn up on a daily basis. I notice there is much more related to academia than practioners and field work so if I would wish somthing it would be a better balance in terms of content. For the Life & Peace Institute working with participatory action research and conflict transformation in Great Lakes and teh Horn of Africa, this is an excellent site. Thanks to all of you who contribute!

This Network allows me to do the following:
1) Get myself updated with activities of peace advocates around the world;
2) Gather information on scholarship opportunities for students and professionals interested in peace and development and forward such information to a wide range of networks where such students and professionals are likewise linked;
3) Invite friends, relatives, co-workers and acquaintances to sign up as members of PCDN;
4) Make a rapid trending of peace approaches globally as I read


(continuation of the previous comments…. Sorry I accidentally hit the wrong button)
I am able to make a rapid trending of global peace approaches and priorities through PCDN. This enhances my knowledge and helps me enrich my syllabus on Peace. It cuts my “search time” for materials and keeping abreast with what’s going on in Peace and Development concerns and activities globally.

I am really grateful to Rotary International for this opportunity, especially to Craig. Two thumbs up for you Craig!

The PCDN has gone so far and so wide and the help to the two communities is beyond comparison yet, I need to be corrected on this. But you can rest assured that you are positively enriching our living experiences, the world over. Good day and best wishes!

I forwarded this to my daughter who is involved in anti-genocide work at her high school and she applied for the program. She was accepted and will go to the UK with 60 students from around the world to discuss peace and global development. She would never have had this opportunity without this network. I am also working with people all over the world and connecting locally with others to help in other areas of human rights and women’s rights because of this network. It has changed my life. Thank you!

I found this website very useful and sharing with other friends in development sector. I got number of useful blogs, job advertisements, scholarship details and much more through the updates. 

There is need to make it more advertised to have more development workers on its circles.

As the name suggests or implies, PCDN is a splendid innovation for professional collaboration and networking, be it in the area of research, institution development, etc. It has kept me connected to as well linked me up with a great number of colleagues, experts and institutions at the cutting edge of conflict resolution, peacebuilding and humanitarian / development work across the world. It has also been a platform for dialogue on cross-cutting issues in these fields among professionals/experts from varied experiences, orientations and backgrounds. This network is increasingly building a critical mass of world changes who will set the agenda for global transformation by actualizing some if not most of the positive potentials of ‘globalization.’ Thanks to the innovator and all members of the PCDN family across the world… Let’s keep the Network alive!!! Kudos!!!

For me, PCDN gives me food for brain information. Everything i ever wanted in peace arena, be it Jobs, fellowships, events, reports, this list cant be exhaustive is on PCDN. Any one engaged in Peace works who does not access this network will have knowledge gaps. I had such gaps until i joined this incredible platform.
