An Interview Series about Careers in Peacebuilding

This podcast was produced by Geneva Peacebuilding Platform, Graduate Institute Career Services. 

An Interview Series about Careers in Peacebuilding explores the pathways taken by both young and seasoned peacebuilders in Geneva and in other parts of the world. It aims to provide some guidance and hope to young professionals who look forward to exploring the field of peacebuilding. As peacebuilding is a globalised local initiative that requires a step away from systems that cater to the few, we have made a conscious effort to include voices of and speak to the issues faced by populations who do not find their roots in Europe.

Healing Grief and Rebuilding Trust as a Pathway to Peace among Conflict Survivors

This video was created by Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) International, Geneva Centre for Security Policy. 


Civil disruption in any community leaves behind generations of individuals to cope with grief. To restore balance and peace, individuals must foster safe communities to acknowledge grief. To build community, survivors of conflict must have an opportunity to make meaning from the devastation they have experienced. As individuals are able to make meaning of their loss, they also rebuild trust within their community. Rebuilding trust is essential towards healing a country, a community, and the individual to protect elements of human security, institutional reform, and economic transformation. These elements are the essential elements of growth towards positive peace.

Rotarian Peace Project Incubator

This video was created by Rotary Club Swiss/Liechtenstein Rotarian Action Group for Peace.


Peace does not need words, it needs actions, concrete actions. This is why the Swiss/Liechtenstein Chapter of the Rotary Action Group for Peace has initiated the Rotarian Peace Projects Incubator. What is this Incubator? Over the past 6 months some 50 people (Rotarians, Rotary Peace Fellows, Rotaracters and experts) from more than 25 countries have worked hard to elaborate peace projects which can be picked up by Rotary Clubs and Districts. The results are around 40 projects for communities ranging from Colombia to Bangladesh, from Sweden to Uganda, always with the one objective in mind: contribute to peace. We have chosen 10 focus areas, and in this video group will present you their exciting work. Enjoy!
