Assessing Resilience for Peace - A Guidance Note

2016. Author: Interpeace, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, CEPAD

Based on Interpeace’s experience with its Frameworks for Assessing Resilience programme (FAR) in Liberia, Guatemala and Timor-Leste, this Guidance Note proposes that using resilience assessments alongside conflict analyses can make peacebuilding initiatives more context-specific, more locally-owned and therefore more impactful. This note identifies avenues to engage in assessing resilience for peace among communities, societies, and institutional structures, through locally owned and driven processes. It also seeks to inform policy and practice on integrating resilience into peacebuilding and conflict prevention strategies.
