Ending a two-decade-long armed insurgency, the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) Peace Accord was signed in December 1997 by the government of Bangladesh and the PCJSS, the political representative of the Hill people.
However, because of ambiguities within the accord and the failure to implement many of its crucial elements, the situation in the CHT today is far from peaceful.
Amena Mohsin considers the context, processes, and politics of peacebuilding in the CHT. Shedding light on the political and diplomatic tradeoffs involved in negotiating and implementing the peace accord, Mohsin suggests interventions at the local, national, and international levels aimed at moving toward resolution of the conflict.
