This report has been produced from the workshop on Assessing and Influencing Progress in Peace Processes held at Barcelona on May 30-June 1, 2018. The workshop brought together a fruitful combination of researchers, policy actors and practitioners, including a mixture of state and civil society actors. The overarching purpose of the workshop was to explore new and emerging developments in methodologies and approaches used to assess and influence progress in peace processes. The report is divided into three sections, with the primary findings of each presented below.
These findings are relevant to those working in the areas of implementing and monitoring peace agreements, measuring peace, and developing new areas and approaches for improving the likelihood of successfully transitioning from conflict to peace.
