Accord - Legitimacy and peace processes: from coercion to consent

Legitimacy matters for peace. It is the basis of the social and political deals between states and citizens, and local leaders and their communities. Legitimacy transforms coercive power into political authority and is the bedrock of peaceful societies.

Gender, violence and peace: a post-2015 development agenda

Feb 2014
In this paper, Conciliation Resources and Saferworld set out a vision for including gender, violence and peace in the post-2015 framework. A gender, violence and peace approach to post-2015 includes but also goes beyond a focus on women’s empowerment. Inter alia, it means paying attention to the links between gender and violence and prioritising inclusive decision-making. Building on our previous recommendations for including peacebuilding commitments in the post-2015 development agenda, we suggest targets and indicators that illustrate how gender, violence and peace issues can best be integrated into the framework.

Accord Insight II project and publication: Local civil society engagement of non-state armed groups

Jan 2014

There is continuing uncertainty at the policy level over how and when to engage non-state armed groups (NSAGs). There has also been little focus on how community-based actors reach out to and are reached by NSAGs. Understanding local interactions with NSAGs may provide better analysis of a group’s dynamics as well as provide entry points for dialogue when formal channels are blocked. However there are a number of challenges and risks, as well as opportunities, for those that reach out to NSAGs.
