Rethinking Political Violence

The Interaction Between Local and International Peacebuilding Actors

Partners for Peace

Authors: Hellmüller, Sara

  • •       Explains how the interaction between local and international peacebuilding actors contributes to success and failure of peacebuilding
  • •       Offers an in-depth analysis of how local and international peacebuilding actors in Ituri (DRC) interacted over time and assesses ways to overcome the obstacles to more cooperative partnerships between them
  • •       Provides new insights on the multi-layered conflict issues in the war in Ituri and the DRC
  • This volume helps to better understand how the interaction between local and international peacebuilding actors influences the outcomes of their programs. Based on the case study of Ituri in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the book analyses the intersubjective relationship between local and international peacebuilding actors over the long term and assesses ways to overcome the obstacles to more cooperative partnerships between them. Focusing on perceptions, the book nuances the definitions of war, peacebuilding and peace and allows for a more comprehensive understanding of conflict contexts. Thereby, Hellmüller contributes to the literature on peacebuilding effectiveness and makes concrete suggestions for translating these findings into practice.
  • Sara Hellmüller is a Senior Researcher at swisspeace, a peace research institute associated with the University of Basel, Switzerland, and a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Montreal, Canada.
