Partnerships in peacebuilding

May 2018
This report offers insights and lessons from Conciliation Resources' own practice and approach to partnering. It is part of a study into how partnerships between international non-governmental organisations and civil society organisation and networks in conflict-affected contexts can support inclusive and transformative peacebuilding. Our research explored the rationale and assumptions behind Conciliation Resources’ partnering approach and looked at how these play out in practice.

Navigating inclusion in peace transitions

May 2018
Based on analysis of four contexts (Nepal, Nigeria, the Somali Region of Ethiopia (Ogaden) and Colombia) this report explores how inclusion is negotiated in peace processes and associated avenues for resolving conflict and effecting political change. While analysis of peacebuilding and peace processes often focuses on elite-led negotiations, this research examines how change is perceived by those living in conflict-affected contexts, and strategies used by different groups to influence political change.

Gendered political settlements

May 2018
Based on analysis of three contexts (Bougainville, an autonomous region of Papua New Guinea, Nepal and Colombia) this report explores how gender inclusion – meaningful participation at all levels of decision making, regardless of a person’s gender identity – is negotiated in elite-led peace processes and political settlements in conflict-affected contexts, and how international and national actors can support it effectively.
