Workshop

Building a new narrative for monitoring

A workshop to strengthen peace and human rights work

The Background

In the past ten years, various new tools and approaches have been developed for monitoring our work in the sphere of conflict transformation and human rights. However, in the midst of our work on the ground, the time we invest in monitoring often falls short in the face of daily realities.

The narrative approach and why we use it

We are narrative beings: humans think, act and feel in stories. Therefore narrative models are increasingly present in fields such as organisational development, psychosocial support and societal transformation: we apply them to monitoring.

What to expect from this workshop

The four-day workshop, will take you on a narrative journey by discovering your past and current stories about monitoring. As you leave you will know what your future monitoring will look like and be ready to start setting it up.
