Publication date: 
Nov 2011
Conciliation Resources and Saferworld

The 1999 Lomé and the 2003 Accra agreements marked the official end to conflicts in Sierra Leone and Liberia respectively and the beginning of their long paths towards lasting peace.  Both are making headway, but the underlying causes of conflict persist in both familiar and new forms.

The findings presented in this policy brief represent a selection of the salient peacebuilding issues, which emerged from workshops and interviews in Sierra Leone and Liberia with civil society and community representatives and a range of other actors.  These issues are explored in depth by local, national and international actors in an edition of Accord on Sierra Leone and Liberia
