Project Description:

The aim of this project is build the trust, cohesion, communication, negotiation and problem-solving skills necessary to a process for constructive dialogue in Liberia, starting by working closely with government leadership to build the capacity of the executive and legislative branches of government and opposition parties to collaborate in a mutually advantageous process.


Peacebuilding Impact: 

The main and crucial peacebuilding impact of this program will be an effective contribution to the restoration of trust among key Liberian leaders drawn from the divided legislative and executive branches, to help these leaders develop a common vision for the way forward, and to establish a sustainable collaborative and effective leadership network to insure the realization of this vision. 



Key Outcomes:

Developing the leadership capacity of the Government of Liberia as a contribution to fostering unity and harmonizing the national vision for development.

Building an enduring national vision for collaborative decision-making through a long-term and integrated national leadership capacity.


Outputs and Key Activities:

The main output of the project will be to facilitate a cohesive, ethnically diverse network of key leaders, drawn from all political parties and both the executive and legislative branch who share a common vision and approach to collaborative decision-making. The program will target a total of 80 Liberian leaders representing government ministers, deputy ministers, and departmental heads, members of the legislature, county superintendents, and all political parties in two workshops. Continual follow up over the 18 months will ensure a deepening of the tools and skills learned and reinforcement of the relationships developed in the workshops. The 7 follow-up workshops will be with both the two new groups of legislative and executive leaders and the fifteen county superintendents, as well as with the initial group of legislative and executive leaders who were previously trained in the Wilson Center’s Program for Rebuilding Liberian Government Collaborative Capacity. While follow-up workshops will seek to deepen relationships and expand impact on individuals, they will also have a substantive focus designed by the participants that will look at challenges and optional responses for moving forward on programs like the National Reconciliation Program or the Poverty Reduction Strategy.
