In January 2019, Counterpart International announced a new partnership with the Reiff Center for Human Rights and Conflict Resolution at Christopher Newport University. Throughout 2019, Reiff Center students will be publishing a new blog series on Counterpart’s website, providing policy recommendations on topics important to Counterpart’s program portfolio based on the unique perspectives and experiences of these up-and-coming international development practitioners.
The Reiff blog series will focus on Counterpart’s projects in Afghanistan and Bangladesh specifically and explore a range of timely socio-political challenges – from youth radicalization to extremism, to violence against women and the effects of water logging. Each blog will consider the role of civil society and government in addressing challenges, discuss existing relevant policies and systemic gaps, and provide recommendations for how the international development community can better support reforms.
