  • Abstract:

    Peace studies has, from its inception, always felt the need to overcome skepticism as to its academic credibility and convince doubters that it is entitled to as much respect as other forms of inquiry into social, economic, and political issues. It has mostly pursued this goal of disciplinary credibility by relying on methodologies developed in such social science settings as political science, law, sociology, and economics. This priority has inclined the dominant approach taken to peace and …

  • Abstract:

    More than forty years ago, Robert Johansen (1980) articulated a humanist approach to international relations. He called on scholars and practitioners to pay attention to ethics, arguing that peace, economic well-being, and social and environmental justice must take center stage in global politics. In the spirit of Johansen’s humanist approach, this essay illuminates the role of law in building people’s commitment to peace and values. My reflections draw from research I have conducted in place…

  • Abstract:

    Interreligious peacebuilding that leans heavily into the relational model of mutual inquiry and experiential learning reminds us that religious peacebuilding requires self-critical, internal work. This essay extends that reminder into two arguments about religious peacebuilding. First, peacebuilding that is religious not only explores texts, traditions, communities, identities, and practices, but it also examines the interpreting framework of the actor. When peacebuilding prompts that level o…

  • Abstract:

    The literature on strategic peacebuilding emphasizes the comprehensive and multidimensional elements) — ie, the full tools and capacities of the outside world (governments, NGOs, international organizations) — that must be brought together to tackle problems of violence and war. The question this paper asks is, given this vision of strategic peacebuilding, what type of international order (defined in terms of norms, institutions, relationships, capacities, etc.) is most supportive of this vis…

    Policy Brief No. 7

    This brief focuses on influential factors for turning Comprehensive Peace Agreements (CPAs) into sustainable platforms for nonviolent social and political change following internal armed conflict. Taking an extensive look at peace processes involving CPAs, the authors recommend that accord negotiators anticipate implementation challenges and set priorities for accord provisions. In addition, negotiators and mediators should include safeguards in the text of peace agreement…

    Policy Brief No. 12

    Since the end of the Cold War, twenty-four civil wars have ended in rebel victory. New rebel governments face existential threats both internally and externally. With rebel victory, international actors may quickly resort to putting pressure on former non-state actors to prevent renewed conflict. In addition, the structural factors that influence rebel victory in armed conflict, such as weak institutions, economic and political grievances, and arms availability, condition…

    Policy Brief No. 10

    Countries affected by armed conflict are more likely to suffer negative impacts to food security, nutrition, socio-economic progress, and are at greater risk of human-induced famines. Because of this, peace negotiations, peace accords, and interventions often include provisions for food aid, humanitarian assistance, and food security. In 2016, the Colombian government and rebel group Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC-EP) signed the Final Accord to End the Armed…

    Abstract:

    Policy Brief No. 9

    War is a territorial process; thus, peace must be conceived as a process of territorial transformation. The Colombian Peace Agreement introduced a territorial dimension in the debates on peacebuilding. Translating the territorial approach into concrete policy, however, has been a challenge thus far. This policy brief describes the lessons learned in implementing territorial peace and makes recommendations regarding the design of peace agreements, their implementation, and …
