Owning the process: Public participation in peacemaking
Publication date: 
Accord issue: 

Introducing the publication, Ed Garcia stresses the primacy of drawing on local capacity as an essential complement to the work of governments and intergovernmental agencies in searching for a lasting peace. In peacemaking, process and outcome walk hand-in-hand and building a people-centred peace requires a marathon mentality and the creation of a social infrastructure for peace.
