Governing and Securing Rural Spaces in Nigeria

Nigeria is experiencing a situational crisis in the governing and securing of its conflict-affected rural areas. Ungoverned space is a direct reflection of the inability of the state to effectively perform its minimal statutory functions: exercise of monopoly of use of force; full territorial control; and provision of basic social services.

Walking the Talk?

Reconciliation is considered an important element in peacebuilding and conflict prevention, especially after prolonged periods of civil war. In Mozambique, all agreements signed between a Frelimo government and the leaders of the armed opposition group Renamo alluded to the need of reconciliation. However, reconciliation never was fully embraced by the authorities and put in action. The addressing of war crimes and transitional justice have never been part of the conflict settlement. Bernhard Weimer`s contribution to the FES Peace and Security...

Do local peace deals work?

This paper maps five cases of recent local level peace deals in South Sudan between 2014 and 2018 to identify key criteria that strengthen the prospects of successful implementation and sustainability of local peace agreements. Critically, there are no generic formulas to achieve effective sustainable local peace deals. What works is highly contingent on the specific local context. Nonetheless, the set of criteria identified in this paper offers a useful guide for external actors who engage in peace-making efforts.

Together, they may face up to similar challenges.
