Since 2003, Charles A. Reilly has been a research fellow of the Institute for Peace and Justice, and Peacebuilding Lecturer in the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies of , University of San Diego. From 1998-2003 he was the director of Peace Corps, Guatemala, after three years coordinating civil society outreach programs for the Inter-American Development Bank. For many years he served as representative for Brazil, Mexico, and Vice-President of the Inter-American Foundation. He began his Latin American development work as the founding director of Maryknoll’s Center for Integral Development in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. With a PhD in political science from the University of Chicago, he has edited or written six books and numerous articles and chapters. His most recent book, Peacebuilding and Development in Guatemala and Northern Ireland (New York: Palgrave, 2009), draws lessons from the uneven implementation of those two peace processes for other conflict settings, and indulges his avocation for exploring poetry and politics. Previous books include New Paths to Democratic Development, Inquiry at the Grassroots, and with Martin de la Rosa, religion y politica en Mexico. Reilly has taught at Georgetown, UCSD, Universidad Rafael Landivar, Guatemala, the University of Ireland at Galway, the Catholic University of Bolivia and the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil.
