Lessons from Four Peace Agreements in Africa
Policy & Practice Brief 10
This Policy & Practice Brief focuses on four peace agreements [...] These particular peace agreements ended serious levels of violence and ushered in conditions that could facilitate peace and democracy in the respective countries. Nonetheless, there have been mixed levels of success, especially regarding their implementation. This brief is written against the background of scholarly and practitioner interest in what makes peace agreements succeed or fail, and it undertakes a systematic analysis of purposely selected peace agreements in Africa, to make recommendations for effective peace implementation.
The Policy and Practice Brief series forms part of ACCORD’s research and interventions on peacemaking, peacekeeping and peacebuilding. Forthcoming topics in this series in 2011 include Peace Agreements, Xenophobia, Mediation, and Environment and Conflict.
