ACCORD Conflict Trends 2011/3

ACCORD is one of the main actors at the forefront of shaping and supporting both the peacekeeping and peacebuilding fields. It has assisted countries in developing peacebuilding strategies, and has supported the strengthening of peacekeeping missions throughout Africa. ACCORD remains committed to the goal of strengthening the understanding of the nexus between peacekeeping and peacebuilding. This special Issue of Conflict Trends unpacks and provides clarity on some of the key questions and issues related to the peacekeeping-peacebuilding nexus, and how it impacts peacekeeping operations and the larger contexts in which they operate.
