Building Sustainable Peace

Tom Keating W. Andy Knight
Price: $ 30

As the world turns its attention to the reconstruction of Afghanistan and Iraq following recent conflicts in these countries, the issue of post-conflict peacebuilding takes center stage. The precise elements in peacebuilding, as envisioned by Boutros-Ghali, include disarming warring parties, restoring order, decommissioning and destroying weapons, repatriating refugees, providing advisory and training support for security personnel, monitoring elections, de-mining and other forms of demilitarization, providing technical assistance, advancing efforts to protect human rights, reforming and strengthening institutions of governance-including assistance in monitoring and supervising electoral processes-and promoting formal and informal participation in the political process.

Building Sustainable Peace presents a timely and original overview of the field of peace studies and offers fresh analytical tools that promote a critical reconceptualization of peace and conflict, while also making specific reference to peacebuilding strategies employed in recent international conflicts.

Tom Keating and W. Andy Knight are Professors of Political Science at the University of Alberta. W. Andy Knight is McCalla Research Professor and editor of Global Governance. Tom Keating is a former Chair of the Department of Political Science and author of Canada and World Order.

This book is a co-publication of The University of Alberta Press, and United Nations University Press. For orders or requests from Canada, please contact The University of Alberta Press: www.uap.ualberta.ca.
