Our project contributes to the work of UN staff in violence-affected countries


Amman, Jordon

Dr. Annette Idler serves as academic expert advising UN staff from field offices in conflict-affected countries during a four-day inter-agency workshop organised by the UN Staff College. The course held in Amman, Jordan, quips UN personnel deployed in the region with theoretical and practical skills to analyse and understand the genesis and evolution of unconventional armed groups in violence-affected countries.

The workshop facilitated knowledge exchange between the research project “The Changing Character of Conflict Platform” led by Dr. Annette Idler and UN staff in the field. Building on research by Dr. Idler, the UN Staff College is in the process of producing its course material to inform everyday peace-building of UN personnel on the ground.
