Dr. Alexandros Lordos is a Senior Associate for the International Peacebuilding Advisory Team. His work with Interpeace began in 2008, where he managed the strategic direction and implementation of the ‘Cyprus 2015 Initiative’, later institutionalized as the Centre for Sustainable Peace and Democratic Development (SeeD). He subsequently led the transformation of SeeD from a Cypriot bi-communal think tank to a global innovation hub with engagements in several other countries, including Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ukraine, Moldova, Rwanda, Liberia, Iraq and Nepal. Between 2014 and 2016, Alexandros advised Interpeace on the development of concepts and metrics within the ‘Frameworks for Assessing Resilience’ initiative, and supported field implementation in Guatemala and Timor-Leste.
Alexandros has over fifteen years of experience in the interplay between social cohesion, reconciliation and conflict transformation. He has used his background in Clinical Psychology to develop a profound understanding of developmental, inter-group and socio-political processes which contribute to conflict, violence and aggression. In his positions as Research Director and Head of Learning and Innovation at SeeD, and as Senior Fellow at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, Alexandros designs evidence-based, process-integrated assessment and intervention systems, to address peacebuilding challenges in conflict-affected societies.
