Daniel is a Project Manager in our West Africa programme and has over ten years’ experience in designing and managing peacebuilding initiatives throughout the region.
For the past five years, he has led on the delivery of Conciliation Resources’ portfolio of participatory research and peacebuilding projects in West Africa with a particular focus upon pastoralist-farmer violence in Nigeria, the Boko Haram insurgency in North East Nigeria and the spread of violence by proscribed armed groups from the Sahel to the Burkina Faso-Côte d’Ivoire-Ghana tri-border region.
This work focuses on supporting effective and inclusive locally-driven peace efforts through peace leadership, youth resilience building, early warning and response, conflict mediation, ex-combatant reintegration, and individual, interpersonal, societal and institutional reconciliation initiatives.
Prior to joining Conciliation Resources, he was based in Saudi Arabia for a foreign affairs think tank and was responsible for conflict and political risk analysis within the MENA region. He holds a Master’s degree in Security Studies from University College London and a Bachelor’s degree in Geography from the University of Oxford.
