The Politics of Peace: From Ideology to Pragmatism?

Proceedings of the swisspeace 20th anniversary conference

Edited by: Laurent Goetschel

The politics of peace has undergone tremendous changes since the end of the Cold War: It moved from an ideological debate into a well-established policy field. How does this affect its content? And, what are the implications for peace research? On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, the Swiss Peace Foundation (swisspeace) invited contributions from eminent experts regarding the most controversial issues of this debate, which include state building, international interventions, civil society, and business actors. The book concludes with some thoughts on the interaction between research and politics. (Series: Internationale Politik - Vol. 3)
