International Peacebuilding

Oxford HR have long recognised that conflict is an integral part of any society’s on-going evolution and development. Conflict management and transformation lie at the heart of positive and productive strategic development and change management. We also know through our work with international organizations and in fragile states, that there is a symbiotic relationship between International Development and Peace and Security. Without development there can be no security; and without security there can be no development. Peacebuilding is concerned with strengthening a political settlement to avoid a return to conflict. It also consolidates peace, building on a Peace Agreement, and supports political reform, security and justice transformation and economic development. Within a broad Peacebuilding approach to post conflict recovery and reconstruction there is a general consensus across the International Community that Security Sector Reform/Transformation is a core element of sustaining peace.

Countries emerging from conflict are often seeking to democratise their state institutions and, in particular, to transform/reform their security sectors – defence and justice ministries, military, police, intelligence services and justice and rule of law systems.  At the same time states, with international support, are involved in crisis management striving to prevent a relapse back into conflict.

Oxford HR understands that the International Community concerned with Conflict, Peace and Security hold the key to longer-term sustainable development, progress and prosperity.  With a growing International Peacebuilding business sector Oxford HR is well placed to provide expertise in the broad fields of Conflict Prevention/Resolution/Transformation and International Peace and Security.

We work with organisations to identify key leaders, senior directors and advisers, executive professionals, and senior policymakers and practitioners to lead innovative change in peace and security appointments across international, regional and national organisations.
