Integrating Peacebuilding, Governance and Gender for Influence and Impact

Experiences and Lessons from Recent Cases

This short volume provides an important contribution to evidence-based learning by providing three case studies that illustrate how CRS integrates peacebuilding, governance and gender into its development and humanitarian programs. The accompanying essay, written by the University of Notre Dame Keough School of Global Affairs’ Dr. David Cortright, draws out the promising practices and lessons learned from the case studies and grounds them in the latest academic research.
