Abstract: Despite little consensus on its meaning, the term ‘peacebuilding’ is frequently employed by practitioners and academics. Dramatic differences in what types of activities fall under the label and variable assumptions about when peacebuilding begins and ends makes the term unwieldy and comparative work challenging. The objective of this paper is therefore to improve peacebuilding’s conceptual utility in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas and advance research in the field. I accomplish this objective by first assessing peacebuilding’s current conceptual utility using two measures: Gerring’s (1999) seven criteria of conceptual ‘goodness’ and interviews with practitioners working in a post-conflict environment (Rwanda). Using these assessments as a guide, I then suggest three ways to improve peacebuilding’s conceptual utility: (1) clarify what is unique about conducting development and state-building in post-conflict environments; (2) identify the links and tensions between each of the macro-process (economic development, state-building, and social reconciliation/justice) involved in building peace, and (3) elucidate how the priorities of peacebuilding alter as the length of time since the conflict increases. The paper concludes by suggesting answers to each of these tasks.

Abstract: 11 years after the ending of the brutal civil war in Sierra Leone, the country is seen as a successful case of UN and international intervention. In this paper I explore the role of education in Sierra Leone as both a catalyst for the conflict and as a component of conflict/post conflict peacebuilding. The paper argues that the current model of post conflict intervention in Sierra Leone sees education as a peripheral sector that can be addressed after security, electoral democracy and markets have been restored, and that while education has played an important contributory role in peacebuilding it remains marginalised. The paper argues that more attention to education and other social sectors could enhance the likelihood that peacebuilding goes beyond the cessation of violence to addressing the underlying root causes that led to the conflict, moving beyond pacification and towards a more transformationary approach.

Abstract: Armed conflicts often lead to large-scale displacement, and other humanitarian problems. These may (or may not) be addressed in different ways during peace processes. In this paper I discuss what I refer to as the peacebuilding framework and the feminist peace framework, in order to determine whether either of these analytical frameworks can be used in an analysis of how the success of peace processes is influenced by the inclusion of the issue of displacement and the participation of displaced persons in negotiations.

I argue that both frameworks see peace processes as windows of opportunity for transformation of societies. I find that the need to include marginalized people and issues that concern them in negotiations is central to the feminist peace framework, and that the question of what is meant by a successful peace process is more developed in the peacebuilding framework. I tentatively conclude that a combination of the two frameworks might be useful for a study of displacement and peace processes.
