SAGE Series in Human Rights Audits of Peace Processes
Five-Volume Set

First Edition
Edited by:
  • Rita Manchanda - Research Director, South Asia Forum for Human Rights, Delhi


April 2015 | 1 040 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd

The SAGE Series in Human Rights Audits of Peace Processes provides an overview of peace-audit study and explores why many peace processes fail. It provides comparative analyses of peace processes in South Asia drawn from field-based audit exercises in four regions: Northeast India; Balochistan, Pakistan; Madhesh, Nepal; and Chittagong Hills Tracts, Bangladesh. 

By placing conflict-affected peoples’ perspectives and experiences at the center, the five volumes explore the gaps between the national elite’s vision of conflict management, pacification, and restoring normalcy vis-à-vis peoples’ expectations of systemic change in the factors that drove the conflicts.  The volumes question the success of peacemaking processes, indexing them on the quality of democracy by looking at peoples’ rights and entitlements.  They set forth ways in which peace accords can be made to deliver a more inclusive, non-exploitative, and just peace.

This set is an exhaustive resource for scholars and researchers working in the area of Peace and Conflict Studies, Strategic/Security Studies, South Asian Studies, and Political Science. It will be of interest to policymakers, human rights activists, and journalists alike.

This set includes:

Volume I - Making War, Making Peace: Conflict Resolution in South Asia
Volume II - Bridging State and Nation: Peace Accords in India’s Northeast
Volume III - Balochistan: A Case Study of Pakistan’s Peacemaking Praxis
Volume IV - Confronting the Federal Sphinx in Nepal: Madhesh-Tarai
Volume V - Conflict and Partition: Chittagong Hill Tracts, Bangladesh
