This is a relatively short survey (it’s estimated to take 15-30 minutes, depending on how many topics you choose to engage with) that has been put together by One Earth Future (OEF) and the Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP), with additional help from other organizations.  

The idea of evidence-based practice is a hot topic in the peacebuilding field and something of a contentious one.  There are a diversity of communities within the peacebuilding field, and each one has a different way of thinking about data, evidence, and knowledge.  The goal of this survey is to understand how different communities within the peacebuilding field understand the idea of “evidence” and where they believe the field has a larger or smaller body of evidence and where there may be consensus.

The survey includes general questions about the idea of “evidence-based practice” and what this means to you.  It also includes more specific questions about different topics in the peacebuilding field and your opinion about the evidence base around each.  Finally, there are some demographic questions about your experience in the peacebuilding field.

The results of this survey will be published in the aggregate by OEF and AfP.  Your specific responses will be kept anonymous: we do not collect personally identifying information (PII) in this survey other than demographic questions. Any PII collected incidentally by the website, such as IP address, will be deleted.

If you have any questions about this survey, its intent or methods, you can email the project lead Dr. Conor Seyle at dcseyle@oneearthfuture.org.
