prompted increased attention on ‘the local’ as a space of conflict resolution. In this introduction, we draw on an attempt to collect, categorise and archive local peace agreements across the globe – the PA-X Local Database – to frame the discussion that unwinds through the subsequent case studies. Any process of archiving, classifying or coding peace agreements involves definitions and boundary decisions as to what a peace agreement comprises. In our experience, this process pushes theoretical questioning of the phenomenon in question. We therefore use this dialectic between categorisation and questioning of the category of ‘local peace agreements’ to explore what comprises a ‘local agreement’ and further understand the relationship to ‘the national’ and the ‘global’.
