Ownership and inequalities: exploring UNEP’s Environmental Cooperation for Peacebuilding Program
Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Stockholm, Sweden.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-2208-794X
2021 (English)In: Sustainability Science, ISSN 1862-4065, E-ISSN 1862-4057, Vol. 16, p. 1159-1172Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The question of ownership—that is, who is included and excluded from policy processes—has become one of the most pressing issues in the global discourse on peace and conflict. While research shows that the inclusion of domestic actors is critical to success, broader international processes often neglect these actors. Focused on environmental peacebuilding—the sustainable management of natural resources in post-conflict settings—as an emerging area, this article employs qualitative content analysis (QCA) to study four core reports of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)’s Environmental Cooperation for Peacebuilding Programme (2008–2015). The results reveal that the framing of environmental peacebuilding in these documents contributes to power inequalities being reinforced. The reports’ language suggests that, overall, UNEP favors international ownership of environmental peacebuilding. By contrast, local actors—both state and non-state—appear to be considered a risk in the context of natural resource management. This article discusses the implications of this lack of inclusion for peacebuilding practice.
