JPD is a refereed journal providing a forum for the sharing of critical thinking and constructive action at the intersections of conflict, development and peace. As a refereed journal with a unique mission, JPD offers a professional and respected tool for promoting dialogue and expanding networks on critical peacebuilding discussions towards coherent, constructive action. Our networks of scholar communities, policy-makers and advisors, practitioners and activists across the North and South that we serve and seek to better serve engage in dialogue around critical issues at the heart of our collective global search for peace. JPD’s capturing of innovative practices, policy analysis and recommendations, and theory derived from the on-the-ground realities that people in conflict and fragile contexts face, offers holistic, practical and visionary approaches that seek to influence policy and practice in ways that support transformative processes globally.

 

  • Aiming to develop theory-practice and South-North dialogues, JPD examines critical peacebuilding and development topics that challenge our era, including:

    • Building resilient states, societies, and livelihoods
    • Infrastructures for peace and violence prevention
    • Political economy of violence, conflict, and peacebuilding
    • Peacebuilding and statebuilding in fragile and conflict-affected contexts
    • Economic dimensions of justice, reconciliation, and social cohesion
    • Identities and relationships in conflict and development
    • Natural resources, the environment, and peacebuilding
    • Human rights and human security
    • Nonviolence and social change
    • Aid coherence and coordination in peacebuilding and development
    • Paradigmatic approaches and theories underpinning policy and practice
    • Peace and conflict sensitive planning, policy making, programming, and monitoring and evaluation
    • Cross-cutting issues: governance, national and local ownership, hybridity, capacity development, power and empowerment, the role of culture, targeting special groups (i.e. women, youth, and minorities).

    JPD foregrounds qualitative methodologies, especially empirically based case studies that facilitate grounded and fresh analysis to serve theory, policy, and strategy development. JPD offers a space for scholars and practitioners to examine the logic and impacts of dominant polices and practices, and to cultivate visionary, holistic approaches striving to advance collaboration between the fields of peacebuilding and development. Our authors, advisors, and editorial staff represent global scholarship, practice, and activism.

    CALL FOR PAPERS for JPD Special Issue:
    Training and Capacity Development for Peacebuilding, Stabilization and Prevention


    Volume 14 Number 2

    With Visiting Editor: Kai Brand Jacobsen, Department of Peace Operations (DPO)

     

    JPD is a tri-annual refereed journal providing a forum for critical thinking and

    constructive action at the intersections of conflict, development and peace

     

    JPD is calling for papers for the Special Issue Volume 14, Issue 2 to be published in August 2019. JPD offers a space for scholars, practitioners and policy makers to examine critical issues in policy and practice and to cultivate front-of-the-field approaches advancing learning from the field and improving collaboration, impact and effectiveness.

     

    The Special Issue on Training and Capacity Development for Peacebuilding, Stabilization and Prevention is inviting articles and contributions from scholars, policy makers and practitioners in training, professional development and capacity building. We are particularly eager to engage authors across different backgrounds and disciplines – including trainers, experts and practitioners from civil society, the United Nations and inter-governmental organisations, armed forces and peacekeeping missions, and more. Our aim is to provide a state-of-the-art publication on pioneering advancements, innovations and critical issues in training, capacity building, competency frameworks and support for practitioners – from pre-deployment training to in-field support and post-operations follow-up. ‘Training’, whether for civil society organisations, diplomats, conflict parties, military, police and security forces or other stakeholders in the field, is widely implemented. All too often, however, this does not translate into effective capabilities for practitioners in the field. Recent years have seen tremendous innovations and advancements in training methodologies and approaches. There has been an increase in the number and breadth of trainings and topics covered. The majority of training programmes and approaches to capacity-building for the field, however, still fall short. Many practitioners – across all sectors – have either not been trained in core competencies for engaging effectively in peacebuilding, stabilization and prevention, or the methodologies and approaches used in trainings they have taken have not been sufficient to actually develop competencies to the level they can be implemented in the field. This Special Issue invites authors and practitioners from different disciplines and professional backgrounds around the world to contribute original, innovative and pioneering submissions – drawing upon evidence and experience – to explore these issues and advance the field of training and preparation for peacebuilding, stabilization and prevention.

     

    This Special Issue is seeking submissions that consider:

    • How to improve the quality, impact and effectiveness of peacebuilding, stabilization and prevention training
    • Core Lessons identified / lessons learned from the field
    • Novel contributions or critical assessments of innovations in training methods and approaches
    • ICT innovations, gaming and e-approaches to training and capacity building
    • Training as an approach to peacebuilding, stabilization and prevention
    • Strengthening local and national capacities: how to build effective local and national capabilities for peacebuilding, stabilization and prevention
    • Ensuring inclusion in training: gender, identity, national ownership
    • Addressing dealing with trauma and self-care for practitioners: how training can help
    • Comprehensive approaches to capacity building for peacebuilding and prevention: the world beyond training
    • Experiences from practitioners, missions and deployment agencies: how can training best serve the field

    Articles submitted to the Journal should be original contributions and are subject to peer review. With occasional exceptions, the editors prioritize articles based on empirically grounded case studies. All submissions must link issues of peace and/or conflict with some aspect of development. Please indicate clearly if the article is under consideration by another publisher. Articles are read by the journal’s editors as well as by two to four outside reviewers (one or two for briefings).
