Peacebuilding NGO Supporting People Affected by Conflict
Accord Insight ISSUE
Reconciliation and peace processes
Reconciliation is increasingly seen as being vital for sustainable peace. But there are still questions around when reconciliation is possible and how to connect grassroots initiatives with national processes. This Accord looks at how four different societies, at different stages of a peace process, have addressed the legacies of violent conflict.
