Rethinking Peacebuilding : The Quest for Just Peace in the Middle East and the Western Balkans, Hardback Book

Rethinking Peacebuilding : The Quest for Just Peace in the Middle East and the Western Balkans Hardback

Edited by Karin Aggestam, Annika Bjorkdahl

Part of the Routledge Studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution series

Description

This book presents new theoretical and conceptual perspectives on the problematique of building just and durable peace.

Linking peace and justice has sparked lively debates about the dilemmas and trade-offs in several contemporary peace processes.

Despite the fact that justice and peace are commonly referred to there is surprisingly little research and few conceptualizations of the interplay between the two. This edited volume is the result of three years of collaborative research and draws upon insights from such disciplines as peace and conflict, international law, political science and international relations.

It contains policy-relevant knowledge about effective peacebuilding strategies, as well as an in-depth analysis of the contemporary peace processes in the Middle East and the Western Balkans.

Using a variety of theoretical perspectives and empirical approaches, the work makes an original contribution to the growing literature on peacebuilding. This book will be of much interest to students of peacebuilding, peace and conflict studies, Middle Eastern Politics, European Politics and IR/Security Studies.
