From their unique position outside the formal structure of the state, civil society organizations can contribute to the durability of peace by identifying local needs. This chapter focuses on the inclusion of civil society in the post-conflict state design and reform process. By creating a conducive operating environment, a state can capitalize on the strength of civil society to complement the efforts of state institutions in the post-conflict state-building process. The chapter begins with a survey of the varied functions of civil society in a post-war context. It proceeds to discuss impediments to the ability of civil society to support state institutions. The chapter acknowledges the potential of civil society to both contribute and inhibit the state-building process. It concludes with an analysis of how states could better sequence and direct their support to civil society initiatives that advance state-building objectives.
