The Berghof Handbook for Conflict Transformation proudly presents a new article:

"On Hybrid Political Orders and Emerging States: State Formation in the Context of 'Fragility'" 

The authors Volker Boege, Anne Brown, Kevin Clements and Anna Nolan from the Australian Center for Peace and Conflict Studies (ACPACS) claim that conflict transformation and peacebuilding need to be of a hybrid nature and combine traditional, state- and civil society-centred approaches in order to be successful. They critically discuss the discourse on failing states and the current state-of-the-art in state-building. They also review successes and failures in the context of Somaliland, Bougainville and East Timor. This article will serve as the lead for Handbook Dialogue No. 8, in which 5 respondents will debate the hypotheses and findings presented (forthcoming December 2008).
