SAGE Series in Human Rights Audits of Peace Processes
Description: The SAGE Series in Human Rights Audits of Peace Processes provides an overviewof peace-audit study and explores why many peace processes fail. It providescomparative analyses of peace processes in South Asia drawn from field-basedaudit exercises in four regions: Northeast India; Balochistan, Pakistan;Madhesh, Nepal; and Chittagong Hills Tracts, Bangladesh. By placingconflict-affected peoples' perspectives and experiences at the centre, the fivevolumes explore the gaps between the national elite's vision of conflictmanagement, pacification, and restoring normalcy vis- and agrave;-vis peoples'expectations of systemic change in the factors that drove the conflicts. Thevolumes question the success of peacemaking processes, indexing them on thequality of democracy by looking at peoples' rights and entitlements. They setforth ways in which peace accords can be made to deliver a more inclusive,non-exploitative, and just peace. This set is an exhaustive resource forscholars and researchers working in the area of Peace and Conflict Studies,Strategic/Security Studies, South Asian Studies, and Political Science. It willbe of interest to policymakers, human rights activists, and journalists alike.
