Deeply divisive political issues, such as unsolved disputes over territory, can disrupt or prevent a transition from armed conflict to a stable post-conflict settlement. But the social and psychological effects of violence also create challenges for sustainable peace. In this panel, we analyse a range of post-conflict issues, including the lasting effects of trauma and psychological distress, the impact of violence on local communities and social institutions, difficulties in dealing with the past, the importance of state legitimacy, and debates surrounding transitional justice.
