Congratulations to MSTC lead facilitator Vat Kamatsiko on her latest article in the Journal of Peacebuilding and Development! (Volume 10, Issue 1, April 2015)

The issue of vertical integration is very relevant to MSTC, because we can use this macro-level tool to help improve linkages between the macro and the local. 

Abstract: This article examines the practicalities of grassroots peacebuilding and discusses challenges they present to vertical integration through a case study of the Northern Uganda Early Recovery Project and its Peace Rings approach. Exploring both direct and indirect vertical integration, the article examines factors that both facilitated and undermined vertical integration, the impact that accrued, as well as the potential for bottom-up approaches to enhance vertical integration. A key conclusion is that in assessing the character and quality of vertical integration, the linkages among various local-level actors are just as important as linkages across international, national, and local divides.The issue of vertical integration is very relevant to MSTC, because we can use this macro-level tool to help better connect the macro with the local.
