8. Peacekeeping, peacebuilding, and statebuilding
- Oliver P. Richmond
‘Peacekeeping, peacebuilding, and statebuilding’ examines four generational approaches to peace which are aimed at consolidating the liberal peace system and international, state, and civil architecture. These are: a first generational approach aimed at a negative peace; a second generational approach focused on social reconciliation and a social peace; a third generational approach focused on building liberal peace through various measures such as democratization, creating a rule of law and a code of human rights, statebuilding, peacebuilding, civil society, and capitalism; and a fourth generational approach focused on recognizing local and contextual peace traditions.
