This is the second phase of Peacebuilding Compared: what works, what fails, what is promising in peacebuilding? For example, is truth a pre-requisite to reconciliation? Can evidence-based international law be a framework for peace? Restorative and responsive regulatory theory, useful in many other domains, will be tested on unique data on the governance of peacebuilding. Responsive theory will be revised as a general social science theory and new theory built inductively. Twelve Asian conflicts will provide contextually rich accounts of perils of peacebuilding (increasing coded conflicts to 22). Unique lessons from each case will ultimately form patterns of lessons from 60 conflicts.
