STAYING FOCUSED, STAYING CONNECTED AND STAYING HUMAN: PRINCIPLES FOR PEACEBUILDING ONLINE

24 September 2020

Summary

The increasing travel restrictions and preventive measures linked to the COVID-19 pandemic became a catalyst for CPCS to critically reflect on ways in which we approach peace work and to imagine what could be the benefits and challenges of running an online organisation with staff working remotely. [...] In assessing options for responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was clear that the violent conflicts that CPCS is engaged with would continue to unfold despite the global pandemic, and we would need to rapidly transition our organisation to adapt to continue our efforts to violent conflicts in Asia. [...] We must take our leadership and initiative to the next level, to communicate and make suggestions. [...] At the end of each block, we review what we know and think we know about changes where our colleagues and partners live, to determine what is likely to happen and what is possible in the next four weeks. [...] We support and encourage others and ourselves to take the initiative and CPCS is a value-driven organisation, and our core values leadership.
