This project analyses the premises and operational initiatives of governance initiatives in conflict transformation processes through a combination of fieldwork, statistical analysis and theory development. The project particularly analyses the following areas of peacebuilding and governance: a) democratic institution building, b) development/ management of resources, c) human rights, d) rule of law, e) policing, and f) civil society. This will be carried out by combining targeted case studies with theoretical innovation.
