We are delighted to announce that Jonathan Cohen has been appointed as Conciliation Resources’ new Executive Director.
Joining Conciliation Resources in 1997, Jonathan has been instrumental in developing the organisation into one of the UK's leading peacebuilding NGOs. This appointment follows the departure of Andy Carl after twenty-one years at the helm. Welcoming Jonathan's appointment, the Chair of the Board, Bishop Peter Price said:
"In Jonathan we have an experienced peacebuilder and conciliator. He is a man of compassion and wisdom. Well respected in the task of conflict resolution, Jonathan will bring to this new role passion, as well as discernment. I am delighted that Jonathan has become Conciliation Resources’ new Executive Director."
"With the global context as fragile as at any time in the organisation’s history, there are challenges and opportunities for Conciliation Resources and our wider community to make a convincing case for peace. It is a privilege to take on my new role and to work with our committed and talented staff, and courageous and creative partners, in striving to contribute to the prevention and resolution of violent conflicts."
