Motivating and Impeding Factors for Corporate Engagement in Peacebuilding
Alluri, Rina M.
The goal of the working paper is to contribute to a better understanding of the motivating and deterring factors for corporate engagement in peace. Focusing the empirical research on the conflict-vulnerable tourism sector in Croatia, Rwanda, and Sri Lanka, the working paper argues that economic incentives are an important though not a sufficient motivation for most forms of corporate engagement in peace. Other factors such as the terms (or costs) of peace and the relationships to or dependence from the government can also strongly influence corporate willingness to actively contribute to peacebuilding.

Nepal From War to Peace
Upreti, Bishnu Raj
Nepal is formally ending the ten years of armed conflict (1996–2006) waged by the Communist Party of Nepal (hereinafter referred to as Maoist) and the government by signing the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in November 2006, but it is within a complicated transition period because of delay or inaction to implement the provisions stipulated in the CPA.

Environmental Peacebuilding: Managing Natural Resource Conflicts in a Changing World
Péclard, Didier
With the current attention given to climate change and global warming, the issue of “environmental security” is back high on the agenda of the international community. Environmental degradation is increasingly considered as a potential cause for the (re-)emergence of violent conflicts due to shrinking natural resources such as drinkable water and land. However, research on the issue has shown that there is very little empirical evidence of a direct causal link between environmental degradation and violent conflict. In order to set effective priorities for environmental peacebuilding, it is important to understand - particularly in situations of environmental stress - how natural resource conflicts are embedded in social and political dynamics, how they are managed by local institutions, and how these institutional arrangements can be supported through outside intervention. Based on a research project conducted by swisspeace within the framework of the NCCR North-South, the swisspeace annual conference 2007 explored those complex linkages and formulated entry points for improving intervention strategies by external actors.
