PCDN Interview Series with Leading Practioners and Scholars

Starting in 2011, PCDN launched our interview series featuring leading practitioners and scholars conducting innovative work in peacebuilding, development and related sectors around the world. The interviews provide members with the opportunity to learn about practice, challenges, and key trends and interact with thought-leaders.

For each interview, conducted by PCDN staff and interns, a number of questions are crowd-sourced by the membership of the network.

Below members can see the following upcoming interviews (where members can suggest questions. Also see the list of archived interviews belww). To see more information about each person and/or to add a question click on the link.
