BC Board AnnouncementNovember 2018
Beyond Conflict would like to announce the following board changes. First, Dr Saleh Dhumad, has stepped down as trustee from the Board. The Board would like to thank Saleh for everything he has done and wish him well as he turns to new projects. We hope to continue to benefit from his counsel as a volunteer/advisor in future.
The Board would also like to welcome Gillian Dare OBE as our new trustee. Gillian is a retired diplomat, with nearly 20 years experience working in Africa, the Middle East and South Asia. Throughout her Foreign Office career, she has specialised in political and security policies in conflict-affected and fragile counties, focusing on conflict resolution, peace building, governance, rule of law and building stability. Her most recent role was as the lead FCO Senior Policy Officer for Women, Peace and Security. She has been awarded an OBE and the Cross of St Augustine by the Archbishop of Canterbury for her work.
While these civilians fled to safely and were protected from physical harm, they continue to be haunted by what they’ve experienced. Terrorism, torture, executions, rape and extremist ideology have all left the hallmarks of suffering on their minds.
