This executive summary of ‘The Spaces of Local Peace Agreements: Towards a New Imaginary of the Peace Process’ uses insights from a new qualitative dataset on local agreements (PA-X Local) to explore the places and spaces of local agreements as an alternative frame to understand conflict resolution in the current moment. We suggest that local agreements present a new picture of conflict and point to a new imaginary for peace processes.
