DOHA: A global leader in the peacebuilding field, former US diplomat and current CEO of The Alliance for Peacebuilding, Uzra Zeya will be offering a workshop on “Fragile States and Post Conflict” at QF partner, Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q). 

Organised in collaboration with Georgetown’s Institute for the Study of Diplomacy (ISD) in Washington, DC, this third instalment of GU-Q’s Diplomatic Education Workshop Series will be held virtually on Tuesday at 4pm, with registration now open for public enrolment.

The workshop responds to a need in diplomacy education, given that the World Bank currently lists 39 “fragile and conflict-affected situations” involving countries that are affected by violent conflict or have high levels of institutional and social fragility. 

Drawing on a distinguished, 27-year diplomatic career, Zeya will share lessons learned in her own efforts to help end conflict through peaceful means, and to contribute to a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world.  

Rodolph Boughaba, the associate dean for Executive Education at GU-Q, stressed the importance of providing executive training that promotes peacebuilding strategies across public and private sectors, saying, “With the confluence of crises in the world today, it is more important than ever that we work towards creating innovative practices that center peaceful solutions.” 

Each workshop in the Diplomatic Training Series is conducted in English as an online class and will run for 75 minutes. A presentation will be followed by engaging discussions for in-depth exploration of the issues. 

A limited number of participants per session, which operate under Chatham House rules, will ensure each session is informative and interactive.
