E16-S8 "The Peace Ranger": Overseeing the Implementation of Peace Agreements with Dr. Josefina Echavarria

Summary & Key Takeways

Dr. Josefina Echavarria has one of the coolest jobs on the planet.  She oversees the implementation and verification of Peace Agreements.  If peace processes were forests, she would be the “The Peace Ranger”.

This episode was brought to you thanks to the Rotary Peace Fellowship (find more details below).

This is the first time a university-based research center has played such a direct role in supporting the implementation of a peace agreement, and the first-time researchers have measured the implementation of a peace accord in real time. Josefina is Associate professor of practice, and Director of the Peace Accords Matrix at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at Notre Dame University.

In Episode 16 of Season 8, listen to Josefina’s earlier years during the worst of the violence in her native Medellin; her career as an academic in Europe and how her team of scholar-practitioners are studying, measuring, evaluating and making sure peace agreements fulfill their obligations.
