This lecture brings together two important notions: peacebuilding interventions -funded by international development agencies- and the question of local ownership of such interventions. In doing so, Dr. Joseph Sany will examine important issues that conflict intervenors, development agencies, and local populations often encounter: assumptions, dilemmas, worldviews, and risks of foreign driven interventions in war torn societies and what these interventions mean for local actors. Approaching these questions from the lenses of a practitioner and a researcher, and drawing on his 15 years of experience as a consultant with international development agencies and his current work as Technical Advisor at FHI 360, Dr. Sany will discuss practical implications, and share lessons learned and best practices.
