Call for Chapters: Are We Making a Difference? Global and Local Efforts to Assess Peacebuilding Effectiveness, to be edited by Stacey L. Connaughton (Purdue) and Jasmine R. Linabary (Emporia State). Deadline for abstract only: November 1, 2020.
Chapter abstracts invited for a forthcoming edited book project on assessment and peacebuilding. The book is entitled “Are we making a difference?: Global and local efforts to assess peacebuilding effectiveness” and will be published by Rowman & Littlefield. Peacebuilding practitioners at local, national, and international levels and educators are the primary audiences for the book.
This edited volume seeks to highlight data-driven/evidence-based efforts to assess the effectiveness of peacebuilding efforts worldwide and to be inclusive of voices worldwide and of diverse methods for assessing effectiveness (e.g., qualitative, quantitative, participatory). The book will also serve as a platform to share case studies of, critical reflections on, and practical tools for assessment. We encourage chapters written by peacebuilding practitioners and/or academics from a variety of fields. We are particularly interested in chapters written by or co-authored with local peacebuilders.
