Описание: Whilst classical approaches linked development with peace, security has become central to understandings of both war and peacetime. This book uniquely reflects on how to deal with the convergence of war and peace in the context of global economic and geo-political development. It addresses methodological challenges in contemporary approaches to conflict, violence, security peace and development. Two dominant contemporary approaches are selected for debate on methodologies and ethical choices: rational choice and identity-based theorizing. The chapters are arranged as dialogues around contending approaches, to better understand how the inter-locking fields of violent conflict, peace, development and security can be researched and understood. The book considers how theoretical and methodological approaches relate to different ethical and political choices, including around engagement and intervention in the four interwoven fields. Theoretical, methodological and ethical issues emerge from the critical reviews of academic discourses and case-study based chapters from across the world, including Sri Lanka, Ghana, Colombia and Rwanda. This book is an invaluable resource for postgraduate students and researchers in Development Studies, Conflict Studies, Peace Studies and Security Studies.
Описание: This collection clarifies the background of land and property problems in conflict-affected settings, and explores appropriate policy measures for peace-building. While land and property problems exist in any society, they can be particularly exacerbated in conflict-affected settings – characterized by unstable security, weak governance, loss of proper documentation as well as the return of refugees and Internally Displaced Persons. Unless these problems are properly addressed, they can destabilize fragile political order and hinder economic recovery. Although tackling land and property problems is an important challenge for peace-building, it has been relatively neglected in recent debates about liberal peace-building as a result of the strong focus on state-level institution building, such as security sector reforms and transitional justice. Using rich original data from eight conflict-affected countries, this book examines the topic from the viewpoint of State-society relationship. In contrast to previous literature, this volume analyses land and property problems in conflict-afflicted areas from a long-term perspective of state-building and economic development, rather than concentrating only on the immediate aftermath of the conflict. The long-term perspective enables not only an understanding of the root causes of the property problems in conflict-affected countries, but also elaboration of effective policy measures for peace. Contributors are area specialists and the eight case study countries have been carefully selected for comparative study. The collection applies a common framework to a diverse group of countries – South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Colombia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The Democratic Peace Thesis holds that democracies rarely make war on other democracies. Political scientists have advanced numerous theories attempting to identify precisely which elements of democracy promote this mutual peace, often hoping that Democratic Peace could be the final and ultimate antidote to war. However, as the theories were taken up by political figures, the immediate outcomes were war and the perpetuation of hostilities.
Political theorist Piki Ish-Shalom sketches the origins and early academic development of the Democratic Peace Thesis. He then focuses on the ways in which various Democratic Peace Theories were used by Bill Clinton and George W. Bush both to shape and to justify U.S. foreign policy, particularly the U.S. stance on the Israeli-Palestinian situation and the War in Iraq. In the conclusion, Ish-Shalom boldly confronts the question of how much responsibility theoreticians must bear for the political uses--and misuses--of their ideas.
Описание: Thirty-four outstanding scholars write about the etymological meaning and the religious, legal and political connotations of the concept of `peace`. They provide firm evidence to show how adopting a multi-faceted approach to `peace` could ultimately contribute to the search for a more authentic understanding of `peace` across the world stage.
Experts investigate the role of child development in promoting a culture of peace, reporting on research in biology, neuroscience, genetics, and psychology.
Can more peaceful childhoods promote a culture of peace? Increasing evidence from a broad range of disciplines shows that how we raise our children affects the propensity for conflict and the potential for peace within a given community. In this book, experts from a range of disciplines examine the biological and social underpinnings of child development and the importance of strengthening families to build harmonious and equitable relations across generations. They explore the relevance to the pursuit of peace in the world, highlight directions for future research, and propose novel approaches to translate knowledge into concrete action.
The contributors describe findings from research in biology, neuroscience, evolution, genetics, and psychology. They report empirical evidence on children living in violent conditions, resilience in youth, and successful interventions. Their contributions show that the creation of sustainable partnerships with government agencies, community leaders, policy makers, funders, and service providers is a key ingredient for success. Taken together, they suggest possible novel approaches to translate knowledge into concrete action.

Описание: Peace by Design seeks to understand whether a particular type of political institution, namely decentralization or federalism, reduces intrastate conflict and under what conditions.
This book critically examines peacebuilding, humanitarian intervention, and peace operation practices and experiences in Francophone spaces.
There are relatively few analyses that seriously study the specificity of peacebuilding activities in Francophone spaces. Such analyses are found in French publications, but these seem to only very rarely transfer or appear in English-language debates and publications. The context of Francophone Africa, in particular, is one that is typically left unexplored in peacebuilding deliberations, despite the fact that almost half of all peacekeepers are deployed or were deployed there in the last decade. It is a context that deserves more serious attention, if only because it provides a fertile ground to explore the key questions raised in the peacekeeping and peacebuilding literature. For instance, in 2002 a French operation (Licorne) was created and in 2003 a UN force was deployed in Cote d Ivoire alongside the French force there.
This book therefore seeks (1) to fill a clear gap in the literature; (2) to explore whether peacebuilding and peace operations in the Francophone spaces have any exceptional characteristics when compared to those carried out in other parts of the world; and (3) to assess whether an analysis of peace operations in Francophone spaces can make a specific or original contribution to wider international debates about peacebuilding and peace operations.
This book will of much interest to students of peacekeeping, peacebuilding, peace and conflict studies, African politics, security studies and IR in general.
