PSRP has organised a panel as part of the Political Studies Association Ethnopolitics, Global Justice & Human Rights, and Women & Politics Specialist Groups Conference ‘Rights in Diverse Societies: Gender, Migration and Ethnopolitics in the EU’, at Queen’s University Belfast, on the 18-19 November 2016.
The panel, ‘Challenges for Inclusive Peace Settlements in Diverse Societies’ includes presentations by Maria-Adriana Deiana (Dublin City University), Cera Murtagh (University of Edinburgh), Siofra Frost (Queen’s University Belfast) and PSRP researcher Laura Wise (University of Edinburgh). This panel is part of the PSRP Peace Processes research theme, and the Negotiating Peace project.
Challenges for Inclusive Peace Settlements in Diverse Societies
The concept of power-sharing in deeply divided societies as an approach to ethno-national conflict management has been applied in practice to several contexts across Europe, including in Northern Ireland, Bosnia-Herzegovina, South Tyrol, and Kosovo. The papers in this panel address the structural constraints for non-dominant actors to participate in power-sharing institutions, and the challenges posed to inclusion when ethno-national divisions in society dominates the terms of the peace settlement. By exploring the opportunity structures for the mobilization of women, civic parties, non-aligned minorities, and non-titular groups, the panel aims to contribute to understandings of power-sharing approaches in post-conflict diverse societies, and the ramifications of this institutional design for fostering inclusive peace settlements.
