The challenge facing applied peacebuilding research is to understand and communicate the complex realities of conflict in a manner that speaks to the utilitarian demands of policymakers. In Search of Strategy reviews the literature on post-conflict reconstruction, describes the existing policy consensus, and suggests a peace implementation framework as a way to structure research on transitions from conflict. The authors argue for an approach to peace implementation that integrates the international implementation machinery to an analysis of social transformations.

In Search of Strategy has been made possible by financial support from Norad.
