Peacebuilding and Conflict Sensitivity

Positive peacebuilding practices are essential to preventing conflict and rebuilding communities after war. Peacebuilding is a diverse field requiring a multitude of approaches including diplomacy, dialogue and mediation, security and justice system strengthening, research and evaluation, community education and psychological support.

Strategic peacebuilding happens on many levels; in the international arena, at a national level and with local communities, behind the scenes, around the table and in the field – requiring the expertise of many different organisations and individuals.

Oxford HR recognise that peacebuilding is multidisciplinary and interwoven with other agendas. Conflict sensitivity requires an understanding of how development programmes intersect with local conflict dynamics and can exacerbate tensions as well as strengthen peace. Similarly, peacebuilding efforts are seriously compromised by the impacts of climate change as conflict over natural resources amplifies instability and climate-related displacement triggers migration.

We are committed to working with organisations to identify key leaders, senior directors and advisers, interim consultants, change makers and senior practitioners who are dedicated to peace work and have experience of working successfully and sensitively in fragile states. We hold a register of exceptional peacebuilders and conflict sensitivity experts who are available for long- and short-term assignments, all bringing a diverse range of skills and knowledge.
