Please join us for an event focusing on the arguments for and against the inclusion of economic considerations in peace processes, mechanisms to provide incentives for key stakeholders, strategies for resource-rich countries and recent case studies.
Relatively few peace agreements signed since the mid-1970s explicitly address economic issues like revenuesharing, job creation or the establishment of a robust economic climate. Available evidence suggests that countries with specificeconomic language in their peace agreements are less likely to relapse into conflict. A growing body of work argues that paying more attentionto investment, production, wealth distribution, accountability, and equity issues during peace negotiations could help consolidate peace and laythe foundation for sustained recovery.
Please join the Center for Sustainable Economies on February 24 for a full day event focusing on the arguments for and against the inclusion of economic considerations in peace processes, mechanisms to provide incentives for key stakeholders, strategies for resource-rich countries and recent case studies. Findings and recommendations will be published as part of USIP’s Peacemaker's Toolkit series.
