Susanna Campbell, 2012

Dr. Susanna Campbell is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding (CCDP) at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID) in Geneva. In 2012, she was also a Visiting Post-Doctoral Scholar at the Saltzman Institute for War and Peace Studies at Columbia University. She received her PhD in May 2012 from The Fletcher School at Tufts University. Her dissertation, Organizational Barriers to Peace: Agency and Structure in International Peacebuilding, uses process tracing and organizational ethnography to build a typology of the determinants of peacebuilding and statebuilding success and failure, examining in detail the interactions between international organizations, non-governmental organizations, and aid agencies and the war-to-peace trajectories that they aim to influence.

Susanna has been investigating the capacity of international actors to prevent violent conflict and build peaceful states since 1996. She has carried out studies and evaluations for the Center for Preventive Action of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Forum on Early Warning and Early Response (FEWER), UNICEF, International Crisis Group, International Alert, the World Bank Post-Conflict Fund, The World Bank Conflict-Affected States Group, the National Defense University, Catholic Relief Services, the UK Department for International Development (DfID), the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the UN Peacebuilding Support Office, and the UN Development Program (UNDP).

She has published widely on peacebuilding, statebuilding, and conflict prevention, including with the Council on Foreign Relations Press, Journal of International Peacekeeping, Journal of Peacebuilding and Development, Routledge, and through numerous reports, policy articles, and conference papers. In 2011, she co-edited with David Chandler and Meera Sabaratnam A Liberal Peace?: The Problems and Practices of Peacebuilding (Zed).

Susanna has received several fellowships for her research, including an Early Post-Doctoral Researcher Grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation (2012), the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) Peace Dissertation Fellowship (2008-2009), and the Tufts Provost Fellowship.
