Abstract One of the hybrid turn's key contributions to debate in the elds of peacebuilding, state formation and international development is its approach to di erence in post-colonial states. Observing di erence and enmeshment is not new; it is in response to the standardising drive of statebuilding that it has critical signi cance. Rather than seeking to assimilate or eliminate di erence, the hybrid turn enables approaching it as the eld from which the political community of the state is crafted. This does not mean devising hybrid institutions, but supporting mutual recognition and dialogue as fundamental to political community in deeply heterogeneous states. Three di erent uses of hybridity are identi ed according to their capacity to enable forms of dialogue and mutual recognition.
