Resources and Peace: Power Sharing and Wealth Sharing in Post-Conflict Situations

Led by Siri Aas Rustad
Jan 2008 - Jun 2013

The PHD project Resources and Peace: Power Sharing and Wealth Sharing in Post-Conflict Situations, seeks to understand under what conditions wealth sharing and power sharing most effectively can help foster civil peace and stability. Power sharing and wealth sharing can help reduce the threat of conflict by giving all potential parties to any conflict a stake in peaceful cooperation and a set of mutual guarantees of security and basic interests. However, we can find many examples, such as Cyprus and Lebanon where this has failed. It is therefore important to look into how these arrangements are negotiated and implemented, and not only the institutions related the power sharing.
