Reflective Peacebuilding

A Planning, Monitoring and Learning Toolkit

The toolkit emphasizes learning before, during and after the implementation of peacebuilding programs. It explores the connections between learning and effective peacebuilding practice, and suggest practices for reflection and learning as individuals and communities. The tool kit looks at ethical considerations, the types of change that peacebuilding practice promotes, and tools to further understand change and develop indicators to trace those changes over time. The tools can stand alone or augment existing systems and practices. They are intended to help practitioners enhance their creativity in developing context-specific learning, monitoring and evaluation systems. Published in collaboration with the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame.
