Abstract:

This paper presents a research framework to analyse civil society roles in peacebuilding. Within the peacebuilding discourse the importance of civil society initiatives has been more and more acknowledged from the mid 1990s. Interestingly, the increase in peacebuilding initiatives involving civil society during the last decade did not correspond with a rich research debate about the nexus between civil society and peacebuilding. Up to now there has been only little systematic analysis of the specific role of civil society in the context of armed conflict, peacebuilding and even less regarding its potentials, limitations and critical factors. This paper analyses the state of the art in democracy, development and peacebuilding research on civil society and presents a research framework with a number of research hypotheses derived from results from case study applications in conflict countries to be further tested in different case study papers at this and another panel.
