Over the past 25 years at Conciliation Resources, initially as Caucasus Director and then as Director of Programmes, Jonathan has supported dialogue and peacebuilding initiatives in contexts including the South Caucasus, Kashmir, the Philippines, Colombia, Ethiopia and Nigeria. Previously he served as Deputy Director of the Foundation on Inter-Ethnic Relations in The Hague working with the OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities. In 2018 Jonathan became Chair of the European Peacebuilding Liaison Office (EPLO). Jonathan is an Associate of the Institute for the Public Understanding of War and Conflict at the Imperial War Museum and a member of the Advisory Board of the School of Slavonic and East European Studies at the University of London.

The CGHR Practitioner Series seeks to allow students to listen and speak to a selection of high-level experts working in these fields, and address key issues and questions. The seminars which take place during the Lent term, are designed to equip students with an in-depth and critical look at what each area involves; the type of work carried out, contingent challenges and essential competencies. The first part of the session will introduce the speaker, chaired by a discussant from CGHR , and will open up to the audience in the second portion of the evening to provide the opportunity for students to engage with the topics discussed.

This talk is part of the Centre of Governance and Human Rights Events series.
