Objetivo/contexto: la investigación sobre resolución de conflictos armados ha priorizado la pregunta de cómo avanzar hacia que las partes logren acuerdos. La pregunta acerca de qué ocurre después ha recibido menos atención. Metodología: en este documento de trabajo ofrecemos una revisión de la literatura académica acerca de los factores que marcan la implementación de acuerdos de paz. Conclusiones: concebimos la implementación como un proceso de múltiples etapas (corto a largo plazo), niveles (de lo internacional a lo local) y dimensiones (incluyendo la política, la economía, la justicia y la cultura). En una fase de implementación, todas ellas deben ser abordadas en paralelo, mientras ejercen impacto mutuo e inciden en su respectivo progreso. Originalidad: la revisión general presentada aquí debe servir a académicos y formuladores de política para comprender los múltiples debates y desafíos en el proceso de implementación de acuerdos de paz.
