Inclusivity in peacebuilding: does it work?

Desirée Nilsson is an Associate Professor at the Department of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University in Sweden. Barbara Magalhães Teixeira is a research assistant at Uppsala University and has been working with Desirée on the inclusion of civil society actors in peace processes since 2018. Marthe Hiev sets the tone for the interview by asking questions about Desirée's groundbreaking quantitative study 'Anchoring the Peace: Civil Society Actors in Peace Accords and Durable Peace', wherein she found that the inclusion of CSO's has a positive effect on the durability of peace. Desirée's research provides a solid perspective on the difficult context wherein peace processes take place, and also provides possible explanations for the positive effect that civil society inclusion has on peace agreements in a post-conflict context.
