Forging Resilient National Social Contracts

Preventing Violent Conflict and Sustaining Peace

About 2017-10-10T20:42:09+00:00

This research and scholar-policy dialogue project aims to revitalize the social contract concept as an actionable idea for achieving and sustaining peace, notably in countries affected by conflict and fragility. Comparative findings from twelve country cases aim to elucidate how national social contracts are understood, manifest and adapt in different contexts. Twelve country case studies and subsequent comparative analysis and dialogue aim to advance policy and practice pathways for achieving and sustaining peace.  

The project is supported by an esteemed group of scholar and policy advisers, and authors from the countries in focus: Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Colombia, Cyprus, Nepal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan, Tunisia, Yemen and Zimbabwe.


The project has gratefully received support from UNDP’s Oslo Governance Center, the Julian J. Studley Fund of the Graduate Program of International Affairs at The New School, Friedrich-Ebert-StiftungBerlin and New York. It is also a proud recipient of a Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Award.
