“Anita  collaborated with Folke Bernadotte Academy in providing a training on systems approaches to conflict analysis for UN staff working in different UN missions across the Middle East. Anita’s expertise, her rich experience in systems approaches and her excellent facilitation skills ensured that the training was a great success. Her ability to listen to and to adapt to the needs of the participants and to raise critical issues in constructive ways are remarkable and were greatly appreciated by the participants and our partners from the UN. From the beginning, the collaboration between Anita and FBA has been very positive on a professional as well as on a personal level. At FBA, we are looking forward to continuing the collaboration with Anita.
