The goal of this project was to identify best practices and guidelines for strengthening peacebuilding and establishing the rule of law in conflict-affected settings. Building on ideas from those who have lived in conflict-affected situations and know what life is like without the rule of law, interim-project outcomes were drafted and tested. Local experts and researchers participated in this process, and were invited to collaborate in expert meetings.

Linking doctrine to empirical findings, the project aimed to systemize the knowledge base by deepening and broadening it in grounded, multidisciplinary, policy-relevant research.
