Dr Kathryn Nwajiaku-Dahou

Overseas Development Institute (ODI), United Kingdom

Kathryn is the Director of ODI’s Politics and Governance programme which brings a political economy, human rights and justice lens to the governance of digital spaces. She is a widely acknowledged expert on conflict, fragility and governance as well as the role of business in fragile situations for 25 years, about which she has written extensively. A common thread of her thinking has been the importance of comparative approaches and the need to bring a critical, shrewd political lens to the study of development practice and ‘developing country’ contexts ‘complex’ political societies and systems like any other.

DEEP DIVE: Social Media and Peacebuilding – Challenges and Opportunities I

Virtual Session 12Relate

Business and Peace - A Partnership for Making Money and Making Peace?

Session 23Translate

Economic development is important for peace. But the link between economic action and peace building is not automatic. Can we develop “win –win situations” where businesses can make money and contribute to peaceful societies?

The FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum is a series of events on current and overarching challenges and trends in peacebuilding.
