Consolidating peace: Liberia and Sierra Leone
Publication date: 
2012
Accord issue: 
23

Elizabeth Drew and Alexander Ramsbotham introduce the structure and content of the publication whilst outlining some of the challenges facing Sierra Leone and Liberia as the two countries shift from post-war peacebuilding to longer-term development.

While Liberia and Sierra Leone are both making progress away from war, there are still challenges to the long-term sustainability of peace. Causes of conflict persist in familiar and new forms, and social and political violence and unrest still affect the lives of many.
