Download report.

Abstract: This report follows the Third Edinburgh Dialogue on Post-Conflict Constitution Building held at the University of Edinburgh on 9–10 December 2016. The dialogue, on ‘Substate Constitution Building in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Settings’, was organized by the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA), the Edinburgh Centre for Constitutional Law and the Global Justice Academy, in association with the Political Settlements Research Programme at the University of Edinburgh. It explored the process and design of substate constitutions in fragile and conflict-affected settings, and their role in the broader political settlement and/or peacebuilding process. This report fed into an International IDEA Policy Paper on substate constitutions in fragile and conflict-affected settings.
