Specialisation Course on Governance and Peacebuilding

“Local governments are often the first to collapse when factions fight for territorial control. In post-conflict settings, the state is often unable to effectively reach parts of its territory for years. Given these challenges, it is no surprise that decentralization and local governance provisions are increasingly prominent in peace agreements and national post-conflict peacebuilding agendas.” (UN SSC)

The role of local and national NGOs, the transparency and legitimacy of the leaders, as well as the representation and participation of the citizens are increasingly important in these processes. (Photo credit: nyugat.hu)
