Reimagining and Decolonizing Post-Conflict Peacebuilding

Back to search results

The world has become less peaceful over the last decade and current approaches to post-conflict peace-building have put into question the success rate of top-down, externally assisted and state-centred liberal peacebuilding approaches. Critical scholars have long called for bottom-up, localized and hybrid solutions but so far have failed to propose concrete alternatives that can benefit the post-conflict peacebuilding policy and practice debate. This project proposes an innovative mixed social and data science approach to fill this gap by studying successful localised peacebuilding solutions and the role of external support, and by developing a success matrix of best practices and policy options.
