Summary "This new report highlights examples of innovative peacebuilding and statebuilding in communities across Africa. Five case studies illustrate the innovative work of local actors, their interaction with national actors and policies, and their challenges and opportunities in linking local knowledge to international policy and practice. The case studies include women's statebuilding initiatives in Egypt; youth-centered peacebuilding programs in Burundi; efforts to build local governance in the face of transnational organized crime in Mali; violence transformation training in Zimbabwe; and the use of online and mobile technologies to counter election violence in Kenya."-- From IPI website
