About the course
How do local actors (e.g. elites, local communities or ex-combatants) perceive and react to international interventions to build peace after war? The aim of this course is to provide an alternative perspective on contemporary peace- and state-building processes, with the experiences and actions of local actors and groups in focus. Questions addressed include: Why is it so difficult to construct a functioning state in the aftermath of civil war? How do local elites govern without institutions?
