During October to December 2013, Swedepeace in collaboration with its partner Propaz, Guatemala, evaluated the peace organization UNIR in Bolivia. UNIR has a long history of promoting a culture of peace as well as building capacity on constructive conflict transformation. UNIR has also developed a highly specialized approach to monitoring & analysis of conflict. The evaluation team, consisting of two Swedepeace experts and one Propaz expert, evaluated the results of UNIR’s five-year strategic plan. The plan targeted local government, schools and media organizations. The evaluation identified several important contributions of UNIR, for example, an effective pedagogical method for conflict transformation in schools and an important influence on media’s capacity to report on conflicts and inter-culter issues.
