Offering a comparative case study of transitional justice processes in Afghanistan and Nepal, this book critically evaluates the way the qlocalq is consulted in post-conflict efforts toward peace and reconciliation. It argues that there is a tendency in transitional justice efforts to contain the discussion of the qlocalq within religious and cultural parameters, thus engaging only with a qstatic local, q as interpreted by certain local stakeholders. Based on data collected through interviews and participant observation carried out in the civil societies of the respective countries, this book brings attention to a qdynamic local, q where societal norms evolve, and realities on the ground are shaped by shifting power dynamics, local hierarchies, and inequalities between actors. It suggests that the qlocalq must be understood as an inter-subjective concept, the meaning of which is not only an evolving and moving target, but also dependent on who is consulted to interpret it to external actors. This timely book engages with the divergent range of civil society voices and offers ways to move forward by including their concerns in the efforts to help impoverished war-torn societies transition from a state of war to the conditions of peace.WashingtonDC:CarnegieEndowmentforInternationalPeace. http://www. carnegieendowment.org/files/wp34.pdf (accessed April 10, 2008). ...
