- Timing of Reconciliation: What conditions and timing are most conducive to initiating reconciliation processes; how does the nature of reconciliation evolve over time; and what makes an end-state sustainable?
- Process Design and Linkages: What are the most effective approaches to create linkages between grassroots peacebuilding and reconciliation (e.g., community-based healing processes), national level efforts (truth and reconciliation commissions), and broader institutional reform efforts (e.g., justice and security)?
- Local Processes and Inclusion: What impact has exclusionary practices had on the sustainability of processes and what has enabled or limited the contribution of woman, youth, and/or other marginalized groups? How do local nonviolent movements affect reconciliation efforts?
- Support Mechanisms and International Engagement: What type of support do key actors need around launching reconciliation efforts and how can the international community provide effective support? How does the engagement of coalitions or broad peace constituencies affect reconciliation processes?
- Other Peacebuilding Approaches: How do practices of trust building, social cohesion, and trauma healing relate to reconciliation efforts?
- Impact and Transformation: What are the most effective approaches for assessing progress towards reconciliation and, specifically, what are the most effective strategies to measure changes in attitudes and behavior that reflect that progress?
