Successful Local Peacebuilding in Macedonia (in Peace Research: The Canadian Journal of Peace and Conflict Studies)

Authors: Ann Kellerher and Kelly Ryan

Access via JSTOR:


Local peacebuilding projects should receive systematic and sustained analysis given their number and importance in creating conditions for peace in post-conflict societies. This analysis of the Nansen Integrated School in Jegunovce, Macedonia brings to light causal factors and specific practices that can produce successful local peacebuilding. Harold Saunders’s concept of “sustained dialogue” enables an analysis of the factors contributing to the school’s success, while five operational characteristics recommended by Dorothea Hilhorst and Mathijs van Leeuwen provide useful guidelines for examining the school and its sponsoring local peacebuilding organization.
