Practitioner Piece: Reflections on the Ottawa Dialogue’s New Research Programme

In December of 2020, the Ottawa Dialogue launched its Research Programme to strengthen its research agenda, refine its approach to facilitation and dialogue, challenge assumptions in the field and generate innovative ideas on Track Two Diplomacy and multitrack approaches to peacemaking. This Practitioner Piece seeks to explore the growth arc of our Research Programme throughout this past year and explore some of these lessons learned.

This Practitioner Piece is a result of a discussion held between Dr. Julia Palmiano Federer, Head of Research, and Laura O’Connor, Senior Programme Officer at Ottawa Dialogue.
