Statehood & Conflict
Dynamics of state formation are intrinsically linked to the history of conflicts. swisspeace conducts research on the day-to-day practices of states in conflict and post-conflict contexts. The goal is to understand how new forms of statehood emerge as the result of negotiation processes between local, national and international actors.
