n Conflict Trends - Navigating hybrid political orders : balancing peacebuilding in Chad

Volume 2011, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1561-9818


There is an increasing understanding of the need to take into account the hybrid political orders existing in post-conflict environments where peacekeeping and peacebuilding operations are deployed. However, most of this work is still at the conceptual level. This article will attempt to advance the theoretical and policy debates on the relationship between local-level and national actors, and the complexities within the notion of local ownership, by highlighting some of the inherent challenges for local-level peacebuilding. It also highlights some of the potential avenues for further development of local peacebuilding approaches in hybrid political orders through examples from Chad.
