He has worked in many of the world’s most conflict-ridden societies. In South Africa he served in the National Peace Secretariat, the multi-party body mandated to implement its 1992 Peace Accord. Post-1994 he assisted the Special Presidential Task Force in key conflicts, focusing on de-militarization of youth militia.

In Sri Lanka Dr. Siebert advised the country’s peace secretariats and facilitated the confidential dialogue forum (One-Text); in Nepal he co-facilitated and contributed to the drafting of key agreements, co-facilitated talks between the Nepal Army and the Maoist Army, supported the establishment of the multi-party dialogue process (NTTP), and advised the Peace Ministry; in the USA he facilitated talks between Arab and Israeli think tanks; in the Balkans he worked on the Stability Pact's reconciliation initiatives; in Cyprus he supported leaders from both Cypriot communities in the development of the Cyprus Dialogue Forum; in Burma/Myanmar he assists stakeholders in the development of a “Political Dialogue Framework” and a “Union Conference”; and in Beirut he supports the Lebanese National Dialogue, CSI, the MENA Platform and Syria Initiative.

With 5 Nobel Peace Laureates, LDI consulted Dr. Siebert on his vision and belief in LDI’s lobbying efforts to designate Lebanon a Land of Dialogue, an initiative he spoke very highly of throughout the meeting, stressing Lebanon’s historical and cultural role as a land of diversity, strength and a leading example of peaceful coexistence in the region.
