Briefing Note

This Briefing Note is the summary of IPTI’s report “Preventing Violence Through Inclusion: From Building Political Momentum to Sustaining Peace,” commissioned by the World Bank as a thematic research input into the United Nations- World Bank Study “Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict.” IPTI’s report analyzes when, how, and under what conditions the inclusion of a broad range of actors in peace and political transition processes contributes to the prevention of violence and armed conflict, through a comparative analysis of 47 prevention attempts reconstructed from IPTI’s datasets. This work builds on previous case study research conducted in the framework of the Graduate Institute’s multi-year project, “Broadening Participation.” 


This briefing note is also available in Spanish, French, Arabic and Russian.
