Local ownership in post-conflict peacebuilding: Cambodia and Mindanao

How do local agencies in conflict-affected societies develop their own models of peacebuilding? Can authentic local ownership be promoted under the strong influence and advocacy of external intervention? In this seminar Dr SungYong Lee from NCPACS will explore these questions by using the examples identified during his field visits to Cambodia and Mindanao (the Philippines).

Some local peacebuilding agencies in the two areas demonstrate four distinct patterns in the development of their own peacebuilding models: ownership inheritance from external advocates, management of external reliance, friction-avoiding approaches, and utilisation of religious/traditional leadership.

Dr Lee will introduce how each of these patterns is being developed, based on this field visits to the two areas, and outline a few practical and theoretical implications with reference to four specific lines of discussion: norm diffusions into local communities, patterns of local-external interaction, dual structure of power, and multiplicity in the identities of local.
