Glaucia Boyer

Glaucia serves as the UNDP Global Advisor on Reintegration, leading the work on transitions from military to civilian life, traditionally known as ‘disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR)’ and more recently ‘prosecution, rehabilitation and reintegration (PRR)’ – and their linkages to UNDP stabilization, recovery and peacebuilding programming.

She brings a development perspective to the often-securitized DDR and PRR approaches and guides UNDP to provide sustainable reintegration solutions for former members of armed forces and groups, their families and communities.

Glaucia brings over 20 years of experience in the UN system, of which 15 years with UNDP as a peacebuilding and development practitioner. She was part of the Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery from 2006 to 2014 and the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support from 2014 to 2018 and has since then been with the Crisis Bureau. Her one-the-ground technical advice and support has spanned across several countries and regions over these years – Burundi, Central African Republic, Colombia, Comoros, Congo-Brazzaville, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Indonesia/Aceh, Iraq, Niger, Nigeria, The Philippines, Rwanda, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Uganda, Ukraine – and the Great Lakes and Lake Chad Basin regions and institutions.

Since 2018, Glaucia has provided dedicated technical assistance to the formulation of Prosecution, Rehabilitation and Reintegration (PRR) strategies within the framework of counterterrorism, with focus on community-based reintegration (in Iraq for families with perceived association with ISIL) and through regional approaches in the Lake Chad Basin countries (Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Nigeria in response to the Boko Haram Crisis).

Glaucia has a Law Degree (1990) from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and a PhD in International Relations with focus on Statebuilding/Peacebuilding (2005) from The Graduate Institute of International Studies, in Geneva, Switzerland.
