We are excited to share Valarie Vat Kamatsiko recent publication titled ‘Macro-level conflict analysis: Addressing the uptake-and-use challenge in fragile and conflict-affected contexts’. Valarie is a theorist-practitioner currently working for World Vision East Africa as Regional Peacebuilding Advisor.
The goal of this publication was to better understand how macro-level conflict analysis, especially in fragile and conflict-affected contexts, can be used by organisations, agencies and institutions to shape policy, strategy and operations. 44 key informants from 31 organisations (NGOs, UN and donor agencies, government institutions and think tanks) operating in Somalia, South Sudan and Kenya contributed to the report. The key finding of the publication is that for successful uptake and use of macro-level conflict analysis, organisations working in fragile and conflict-affected contexts must balance external context assessment with internal organisational process and methodological rigour. The publication invites entities to thoughtfully consider the findings and recommendations with an aim to promote uptake and use of macro-level conflict analysis, especially in fragile and conflict-affected contexts in order to improve effectiveness of strategies, programming & operations.
