Glencree Centre of Peace and Reconciliation: Vacancies
Glencree Centre of Peace and Reconciliation are recruiting
The Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation (Glencree) is an independent, non-governmental organisation that works with individuals and groups to transform violent conflict, promote reconciliation, build sustainable peace, cultivate positive relationships, and works towards more inclusive, equitable, and diverse societies.
Glencree was founded in 1974 as a direct response to the violence happening predominantly in Northern Ireland. Through working with politicians, women, youth, victims/survivors, former combatants, security force personnel, community, and religious leaders Glencree has built a strong reputation for its practical contribution to peacebuilding and the Northern Irish peace process.
Glencree is based and carries out much of its work from its beautiful and historic residential centre in the Wicklow Mountains just 25kms from Dublin City Centre.
Building on Glencree’s work with politicians, victims and survivors, former combatants and security forces Glencree started a ‘Legacy of Violence’ Programme in 2015. This formed the basis of a Peace IV application and Glencree was awarded funding by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) for a project entitled ‘Addressing the legacy of violence through facilitated dialogue’ to run from 2017-2021.
The Programme which will run until December 2021 will be focused around, but not limited to, the experiences of four ‘victims and survivors’ groups and their communities. Through a process of private and confidential facilitated dialogues, it examines themes and issues, which remain as obstacles to deeper understanding and the promotion of positive relations. The four key groups along with other relevant parties have co-developed their own process and pace of engagement. The learning accrued through the project will be of assistance to ‘Victims and Survivors’ groups, other interest groups, academics, policymakers, and practitioners in ascertaining how to productively engage with Northern Ireland’s contentious past and this learning will be shared through publications, roundtables and an end of project Symposium.

- Assistant Project Manager
