Peacebuilding in conflict-prone or post-conflict countries - such as East Timor, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Sierra Leone - aims to prevent the re-emergence or escalation of violent conflict and establish a durable peace.

It goes beyond the narrow focus on democracy and market economics by interrogating a wider area of peacebuilding activities, including the (re)construction of state institutions
