International literature review of approaches to state support for peace processes
The project comprises an international, interdisciplinary network of experts from University of Melbourne and from across Africa and Europe.

The report explores how Canada, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States of America have approached supporting peace processes. It aims to identify concrete steps for Australia to consider in enhancing its approach to supporting peace and stability, including improving its capacity to support peace processes through whole of government approaches.
