New interactive infographics now live

Introducing our new interactive infographics!

Our new series of infographics illustrate our research into 30 years of peace processes around the world. We hope that this tool can facilitate research on peacemaking so that new ways of attempting to resolve intractable conflicts in deeply divided places can be developed in a way that maximises social justice.

 Peace Processes

Peace processes seldom unfold in a straightforward line from violence to peace. Often talks are started, breakdown and restart. This infographic provides an overview of peace agreements and peace processes.

 

Gender Perspectives

Where are women involved in peace processes, and how can peace agreements adopt a gender perspective? This infographic shows that there is a low level of women’s inclusion in peace agreements, but that it has improved over time.

 

Political Power-Sharing

Political power-sharing brings rival parties into unity governments and is often used as a way of resolving conflict by redistributing power. This infographic shows how political power-sharing works to include some groups but can sometimes exclude other, non-dominant groups.

 

Economic Power-Sharing

Economic power-sharing involves the distribution of resources and economic power between key groups or military actors. This infographic shows how tensions over control of resources are resolved in peace negotiations.

 

Military Power-Sharing

Military power-sharing describes the ways in which different armed groups can be brought within some form of common military framework, by peace negotiations. This infographic sets out different models of power-sharing with examples.

 

Territorial Power-Sharing

Territorial power-sharing involves the delegation of power to a regional or local level, where a minority group may be in a majority, so as to give them some form of self-governance. Our research shows the different forms territorial power-sharing can take, and the pros and cons, particularly for women.

 

Amnesties

Amnesties can encourage those involved in conflict to move from war to peace by offering immunity for some actions during war. This new infographic explores how amnesties are in tension with, or can be reconciled with accountability.

 

Transitional Justice

The term ‘transitional justice’ describes efforts to allow societies to come to terms with past violence so that some level of justice and reconciliation can be achieved. This infographic shows the diversity of forms of transitional justice and the complex relationship to inclusion and political stability.

 

Structural Pressures and Political Instability

 This infographic examines the reasons states are vulnerable, and sets out the various dimensions of structural pressure that contribute to political instability.
