Project Summary

In October 2012, the Carnegie Corporation of New York awarded Emory University major funding for a comparative project on recovery from conflict in West Africa and Southeast Asia, entitled "The Comparative Postconflict Recovery Project: New Solutions for Building Livable Peace In and Beyond West Africa."

The primary outcome of CPRP concerns the fresh insights, learning, and changed and enhanced perspectives of participants from West Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa concerning postconflict recovery, including in relation to counterpart practitioners of statebuilding and peacebuilding in Inner and Southeast Asia.
