Capacity Development in a Post-Conflict Context: The Case of Liberia

By: Cleophas Torori, Lisa Reinarz

This case study evaluates the capacity development efforts in Liberia as of 2010. As Liberia consolidates its transition from conflict to peace, stability, and development, there are opportunities to develop and bring about effective leadership and change management capacities especially in the public sector. The case study concludes that capacity development in a post conflict context must proceed not only from an assessment of needs but also from an assessment of extant capabilities, taking into account the “social capital”— the talents and skills of the local people and their community networks that constitute critical building blocks for peace, reconstruction, and development.
