In 2006 we focused primarily upon laying the groundwork and recruiting the faculty and staff to enable us to begin the intellectual and institutional change processes outlined above. We achieved most of our deliverables for 2006 and are extending several into 2007. However, the overall shape of our deliverables in the coming twelve months will differ substantially from those of the closing year.
Strategic planning undertaken in 2004/5 has paid off. The Center has revised its research portfolio to focus on three critical themes of research: Lives and Livelihoods, Rights and Protection, and Politics and Policy. In July 2006, the Center staff moved into a new, larger space in an office building at the Tufts Medford campus, and we have opened a permanent second office in Addis Ababa. Our team of researchers, both in Medford and in Addis, has expanded over the year, and we are set to continue this expansion into 2006/7.
The past year has been one of intense activity for the Center. Field research in Ethiopia, Darfur, Uganda, the Balkans, West Africa, and Afghanistan has resulted in the publication of a number of major reports which have been received with considerable interest by the humanitarian community. In addition, the Center has played a leading role in informing the peace and justice process in Northern Uganda. Center-led contributions to the British Medical Journal and other media have helped shape the policy debate around the international response to the tragic December 26th tsunami in the Indian Ocean.
