Supporting or Resisting Change: Elite Strategies in War to Peace and Political Transitions
Report - IPTI
Andreas Hirblinger, Suzanne van Hooff, Molly Kellogg, and Thania Paffenholz.
The report asks which strategies elite actors apply in order to influence political change in a formal peace process, i.e. the objectives they pursue, and the approaches they use in order to achieve them. To this end, it reconstructs the patterns of elite behavior across 43 peace and transition processes in IPTI’s qualitative database.
