Description

Why is it that states emerging from intervention, peacebuilding and statebuilding over the last 25 years appear to be 'failed by design'? This study explores the interplay of local peace agency with the (neo)liberal peacebuilding project. And it looks at how far can local 'peace formation' dynamics can go to counteract the forces of violence and play a role in rebuilding the state, consolidate peace processes and induce a more progressive form of politics. By looking at local agency related to peace formation, Oliver Richmond and Sandra Pogodda find answers to the pressing question of how large-scale peacebuilding or statebuilding may be significantly improved and made more representative of the lives, needs, rights, and ambitions of its subjects.

Explores the complex interplay of forces that shape 'peace' in the modern state Why do states that have emerged from intervention, peacebuilding and statebuilding over the last quarter century appear to be 'failed by design'? What emerges from the interplay of local peace agency with the (neo)liberal peacebuilding project? How far can local 'peace formation' dynamics counteract the forces of violence and play a role in rebuilding the state, consolidating peace processes and inducing a more progressive form of politics? Picking up where Liberal Peace Transitions (2009) left off, this book looks at local agency related to peace formation in order to find answers to the pressing question of how large-scale peacebuilding or statebuilding may be significantly improved and made more representative of the lives, needs, rights and ambitions of its subjects.
