    Abstract The importance of regional approaches to peacebuilding is often recognized in policy documents and public statements, but rarely acted on. Three considerations explain the relevance of regional approaches to peacebuilding, namely: (1) conflicts are rarely isolated within state borders, (2) those who are closer to the problem are often in a better position to understand and influence it, and (3) their proximity ensures that they have a long-term interest in its outcomes. However, this does not mean that regional approaches are automatically benevolent. In some cases those with an interest at stake tries to influence the outcome in their favour, often through a local proxy, and in so doing become part of the problem.
