Towards a Strategic Framework for Peacebuilding: Getting Their Act Together Overview report of the Joint Utstein Study of Peacebuilding
The thrust of the agenda established by the development ministers of Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and the UK at their meeting in Utstein in 1999 was not new policy but better implementation of existing policy. Improved implementation is also the goal of the Joint Utstein Study of Peacebuilding. The empirical basis of the joint study is an illustrative survey of 336 peacebuilding projects implemented by the four original Utstein governments (U4). As well as the survey, studies were prepared of each country’s peacebuilding policy and activities. Together with the wider literature on conflict and peacebuilding, that material forms the basis of this report.
