On 25 June, Jan Pospisil (ASPR) presented PSRP work at a workshop on illiberal peacebuilding in Asia. The event was part of a series of discussions to examine the form and the role of non-liberal approaches to managing conflict particularly in South and South East Asia, convened by a group of scholars around Rajesh Venugopal (LSE), Claire Smith (York) and Lars Waldorf (Dundee). The discussions focused on particularities of Asian approaches in conflict management and peacebuilding – in particular the usefulness of a ‘liberal/illiberal peacebuilding’ typology – and some regional examples, particularly Myanmar. The PSRP intervention demonstrated the strong role of power-sharing in peace processes in the region, based on PA-X data, and discussed the possible usefulness of the lens of ‘formalised political unsettlement’.
