There is a broad global consensus that inclusion matters in peace processes. The 2018 UN and World Bank report, Pathways for Peace, asserts that ‘addressing inequalities and exclusion’ and ‘making institutions more inclusive’ are key to preventing violent conflict.

Effective peace processes do not mean including all of the people all of the time but making informed decisions about who should be included in what and how.

May 2018
Based on analysis of four contexts (Nepal, Nigeria, the Somali Region of Ethiopia (Ogaden) and Colombia) this report explores how inclusion is negotiated in peace processes and associated avenues for resolving conflict and effecting political change. While analysis of peacebuilding and peace processes often focuses on elite-led negotiations, this research examines how change is perceived by those living in conflict-affected contexts, and strategies used by different groups to influence political change.
