Untangling Conflict: Local Peace Agreements in Contemporary Armed Violence

Jan Pospisil, Laura Wise, Christine Bell

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


Local peace agreements are difficult to define and to delineate from the regional and national level. In many cases, they result from long-lasting traditions of conflict management and customary legal processes. They are not a new phenomenon. Still, the number of written and publicly available local peace agreements is increasing, which provides greater visibility of their role and relationship to both local
conflict and national peace processes.
