Governance and Law: The Distinctive Context of Transitions from Conflict and its Consequences for Development Interventions

Abstract

This briefing paper focuses on the relationship of law to governance, in fragile and conflict-affected states that are attempting to transition from violent protracted social conflict. The paper is intended to set out a broad conceptual framework of the relationship between law and governance as it relates to peacebuilding attempts to reconstruct governance post-conflict. The paper draws on and provides a guide to relevant research which provided the underpinning of the Political Settlements Research Programme, and is being developed under its auspices by a consortium of five organisations.
