“Think about conflict alternatively, understand and prevent what stimulates violence, strengthen what builds cohesion, prepare dialogue and mutual understanding…
In every mission, my counterpart becomes a team member and we dive into each situation with four principles for action:
Contextualize – Each context has its own solutions, developed from the existing actors and systems. My approach supports the clarification of needs and emergence of capacities from actual endogenous resources.
Innovate – Durable solutions to complex problems come from breaking down the barriers between thinking and action models. My practice connects research and action, psychosocial and structural approaches, public and private spheres, grounded actors and high level decision makers.
Learn – Approaching conflict complexity means being humble before the constant learning path ahead. Together with my partners, we cross this path by dint of analysis, listening and flexibility.
Integrate – An action at the local or individual level impacts conflict if it receives an echo at the institutional level and vice-versa. Intervention fields locally (in France) and abroad (in developping countries) are not so different. Issues locally in France and abroad intersect and nourish each other. I conduct each intervention with 360° vision.
My work in consulting, action-research, project management or capacity-building is based on these 4 principles no matter whether I am working in the field, or as an advisor”
“Aline Brachet quickly stepped into AFD’s culture to support teams in conflict sensitive programming methods. Appia Capacity is one of few french-speaking resources in conflict sensitivity for the develepment field.”
“We have been trained and advised by Aline to build a collective vision of negotiation and mediation. Learning from other experiences and simulations close to our issues made us (both volunteers and staff) move from our usual emergency reactions to human and organisational crisis, from firemen to negotiators!”
“Aline was absolutely indispensable to the success of our workshop…demonstrating agile and effective teamwork under what was a very tight timeline. Her analytical skills are top-notch: she demonstrated a mastery of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies and tools for conflict analysis. She also has a good understanding of pedagogy…offering a number of helpful ideas to tailor/improve the training curriculum and enhance its delivery as well as the follow-up coaching.”
Aline proved to be a committed and effective co-mediator. Her knowledge about conflict and skills as a coach are valuable inputs for the field of territorial dialogue and environmental mediation.
