Oslo Governance Centre

Fellowship programme


Oslo Governance Center (OGC) in partnership with the Joint UNDP-DPA Programme on Building National Capacities for Conflict Prevention established a residential Peace and Development Advisors (PDA) Fellowship Programme in 2016. This Programme consists of several cohorts, each involving between 4-6 PDA's and/or conflict prevention specialists over a period of about two weeks. The Fellowship Programme involves guided reflections to help draw out the Fellows' experience on pre-identified conflict prevention and peacebuilding issues. 

The purpose of this Programme is mainly to capture and disseminate the rich insights of these practitioners; gauge their views and experiences; strengthen exchange amongst the Fellows and the broader community of practice; and finally to encourage the Fellows to explore the impact of their work and learn from their peers. It will also help focus on substantive and operational challenges, ultimately contributing to a more effective support of PDAs and conflict prevention specialists to national partners and UN Country Teams.
