Post-conflict transition periods offer a brief, but critical opportunity to build the legitimacy of emerging democratic systems and to establish a foundation for inclusive political processes and institutions. Despite an emerging concensus that citizen inclusion in transition processes are necessary to foster legitimate and stable, political systems, significant knowledge gaps exist on how to create opportunities more effectively for citizens to be included and develop trust in transitional processes, as well as enable them to be in a position to influence the design, implementation, or evaluation of the transitional process. This report tests several current assumptions about citizens' inclusion during transitions in their country.
