The Roles of Local, National, and International Actors

(p.231) 9 Human Rights and Strategic Peacebuilding
Strategies of Peace

Naomi Roht-Arriaza

Oxford University Press

In addressing past human rights violations, strategic peacebuilding must pay attention not only to efforts at the state level, but also to local, transnational, and international actors. The role of international courts and tribunals in generating pressure for domestic prosecution is one pertinent example. While recognizing the critical importance of each level, Roht-Arriaza highlights the role of local initiatives in complementing international and national efforts by changing conflict-created power dynamics and fostering ownership on a larger scale. These initiatives include memorializing past atrocities, local involvement in national truth commissions, and local justice mechanisms.
