Narrative description of Project: Local Peace Committees have been implemented to secure peace at local level as part of a national peace process; or because specific conditions at local level made a local peace process necessary. The rationale for implementing LPCs is that insufficient attention to the need to secure peace at local level would be a threat to the sustainability of the national peace process. The deep-rooted nature of conflict at local level, the psychological effects of violence and neglect on local communities where protagonists had to continue co-existing, the prospect of intense political competition in the context of a fragile peace, and the dynamics and inherent instability of transition periods provided sufficient reasons for considering the implementation of LPCs.
