Language: English . Brand New Book. Is sustainable peace an illusion in a world where foreign military interventions are replacing peace negotiations as starting points for postwar reconstruction? What would it take to achieve durable peace? This book presents six provocative case studies authored by respected peacebuilding practitioners in their own societies. The studies address two cases of relative success (Guatemala and Mozambique), three cases of renewed but deeply fraught efforts (Afghanistan, Haiti, and the Palestinian Territories), and the case of Sri Lanka, where peacebuilding was aborted but where the outlines of a new peace process can be discerned.

Synopsis : This is the result of a three-year project asking "What Kind of Peace is Possible?" "The Paradoxes of Peacebuilding Post-9/11" investigates the potential for sustainable peacebuilding around the globe. The volume is divided into four parts: the first looks at relative successes, including a chapter from the former Commissioner for Peace in Guatemala; the second looks at gridlock situations, such as Haiti and the Palestinian territories; the third looks into the future, with a case study on Afghanistan and another on Sri Lanka; and, the final section provides critical reviews of policy and practice on demobilization, disarmament, and reintegration.This timely book bridges the gap between minimalist and maximalist approaches to peacebuilding, and provides policy recommendations for national agents of change. As well, it gives voice to Southern researchers in Northern-dominated debates. It will interest practitioners and students of peace, security and development studies, as well as policymakers at many levels of government.
A propos de l'auteur: Stephen Baranyi is Principal Researcher on Conflict Prevention at the North-South Institute in Ottawa.
