Abstract:With Liberia's new president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who was inaugurated on January 16, 2006, the country's second post-conflict peacebuilding project - following two civil wars - began in earnest. This special issue of Liberian Studies Journal examines post-conflict peacebuilding in Liberia. George Klay Kieh, Jr. assesses the liberal model of post-conflict peacebuilding in Liberia. E. Ike Udogu examines the causes of the failure of the nation-State and presents suggestions for improvement of the situation. John Mukum Mbaku probes the issue of constitutionalism and governance in Liberia. Veronica P. Fynn interrogates two of the major challenges - access to health and education - that confront Liberian refugees in their host countries. Samuel N. Duo, Tracy S. Hoover and Constance Flanagan examine the issue of nonformal education and training as important vehicles for building the capacity of civil society organizations in Liberia. [ASC Leiden abstract]
