Building Sustainable Peace

Building Sustainable Peace

Edited by TOM KEATING & W. ANDY KNIGHT 

As the world turns its attention to the reconstruction of the 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 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.

International Commissions and the Power of Ideas

International Commissions and the Power of Ideas

Edited by
RAMESH THAKUR • ANDREW F. COOPER • JOHN ENGLISH

HOW are good ideas for enhancing global governance converted into policy initiatives and international institutions? One major route has been via international commissions. The names of many are well known : Brandt, Palme, Brundtland, Kosovo, the Commission on Global Governance, and the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty. Yet, as an expression of the power of ideas, in the search for a better world, they remain under-analyzed.

International Commissions and the Power of Ideas situates the Commissions as an inter-connected process shaping the mind — and the architectural body — of global governance. The influence of these Commissions has been varied, and these differences make this book particularly relevant. The character and record, and style and substance of a wide variety of International Commissions receive detailed analysis on an individual basis, while the generalized context and impact of International Commissions receives rich comparative appreciation.
