    Project Details

    Description

    This project aims to produce a comprehensive empirical study of peace-settlement amnesties and their impact on democracy, human rights and long-term peace in the aftermath of violent conflict. It combines a large-scale global study of all amnesties included in peace accords from 1980 to 2005 with four case studies drawn from the Asia-Pacific region: Indonesia/Aceh, Papua New Guinea/Bougainville, East Timor and the Solomon Islands. It will provide an original contribution to scholarship concerned with amnesties and peacesettlements as well as crucial and as yet unavailable insights into the effectiveness and broader ramifications of offering amnesties in exchange for peace that will inform future peacemaking practice.
