This book deals with the question how institutional reform can contribute to peacebuilding in post-war and divided societies. In the context of armed conflict and widespread violence, two important questions shape political agendas inside and outside the affected societies: How can we stop the violence? And how can we prevent its recurrence? Comprehensive negotiated war terminations and peace accords recommend a set of mechanisms to bring an end to war and establish peace, including institutional reforms that promote democratization and state building. Although the role of institutions is widely recognized, their specific effects are highly contested in research as well as in practice. This book highlights the necessity to include path-dependency, pre-conflict institutions and societal divisions to understand the patterns of institutional change in post-war societies and the ongoing risk of civil war recurrence. It focuses on the general question of how institutional reform contributes to the establishment of peace in post-war societies. This book comprises three separate but interrelated parts on the relation between institutions and societal divisions, on institutional reform and on security sector reform. The chapters contribute to the understanding of the relationship between societal cleavages, pre-conflict institutions, path dependency, and institutional reform. This book will be of much interest to students of peacebuilding, conflict resolution, development studies, security studies and IR.

This book investigates peacebuilding in post-conflict scenarios by analysing the link between peace, space and place. By focusing on the case studies of Cyprus, Kosovo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Northern Ireland and South Africa, the book provides a spatial reading of agency in peacebuilding contexts. It conceptualises peacebuilding agency in post-conflict landscapes as situated between place (material locality) and space (the imaginary counterpart of place), analysing the ways in which peacebuilding agency can be read as a spatial practice. Investigating a number of post-conflict cases, this book outlines infrastructures of power and agency as they are manifested in spatial practice. It demonstrates how spatial agency can take the form of conflict and exclusion on the one hand, but also of transformation towards peace over time on the other hand. Against this background, the book argues that agency drives place-making and space-making processes. Therefore, transformative processes in post-conflict societies can be understood as materialising through the active use and transformation of space and place. This book will be of interest to students of peacebuilding, peace and conflict studies, human geography and IR in general.

This volume draws together original research related to conceptual and practical advances at the interface of urban safety and peacebuilding. The book reflects the advances in urban safety and peacebuilding to help address the rapidly increasing risk of conflict and insecurity in cities. Specifically, it draws on contributions to the Technical Working Group on the Confluence of Urban Safety and Peacebuilding Practice, an informal expert network co-facilitated by the United Nations Office at Geneva, UN-Habitat’s Safer Cities Programme, and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform. A focus on ‘sustaining peace’ serves as a framework for situating new policy responses against conflict, violence, and exclusion in the city, and for promoting a conversation across disciplinary and specialist silos. The volume thereby broadens the optic of peacebuilding practice beyond interstate and intrastate armed conflicts – and especially their aftermath – and reconnects it to the community-level origins of building peace. The analysis and practice presented here will remind those willing to work towards peaceful and inclusive cities that there are tried and tested approaches available, and a host of experts and practitioners ready to accompany those prepared to lead in their respective contexts. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in the fields of peacebuilding, urban studies, security studies, and international relations.

This volume examines the dynamics of socio-political order in post-colonial states across the Pacific Islands region and West Africa in order to elaborate on the processes and practices of peace formation. Drawing on field research and engaging with post-liberal conceptualisations of peacebuilding, this book investigates the interaction of a variety of actors and institutions involved in the provision of peace, security and justice in post-colonial states. The chapters analyse how different types of actors and institutions involved in peace formation engage in and are interpenetrated by a host of relations in the local arena, making ‘the local’ contested ground on which different discourses and praxes of peace, security and justice coexist and overlap. In the course of interactions, new and different forms of socio-political order emerge which are far from being captured through the familiar notions of a liberal peace and a Weberian ideal-type state. Rather, this volume investigates how (dis)order emerges as a result of interdependence among agents, thus laying open the fundamentally relational character of peace formation. This innovative relational, liminal and integrative understanding of peace formation has far-reaching consequences for internationally supported peacebuilding. This book will be of much interest to students of statebuilding, peace studies, security studies, governance, development and IR.

​In den letzten Jahrzehnten ist ein Wandel im Kriegsgeschehen zu verzeichnen, der sich auch auf die Kriegsforschung auswirkt. Prozesse der staatlichen Entgrenzung und Denationalisierung führten zu neuen Formen der Kriegsführung. Damit verbunden sind auch eine Regionalisierung und Transnationalisierung von Krieg und die Entstehung von regionalen Konfliktsystemen. Diese sind gekennzeichnet durch interdependente gewaltsame Konflikte unter Beteiligung unterschiedlicher Akteure, die auf verschiedenen Handlungsebenen aufgrund von gegensätzlichen Interessen miteinander konkurrieren und/oder in komplexen Netzwerken miteinander interagieren. Das Phänomen der regionalen Konfliktsysteme wurde bislang jedoch nur unzureichend theoretisch erfasst und nur vereinzelt empirisch erforscht. Dieses Forschungsdesiderat ist der Ausgangspunkt für die Untersuchung. Sie ist geleitet von zwei zentralen, interdependenten Forschungsfragen: Welche strukturellen Rahmenbedingungen ermöglichen das Auftreten regionaler Konfliktsysteme und der daran beteiligten Gewaltakteure? Auf Grundlage dieser Erkenntnisse untersucht die Autorin, welche Faktoren zu einer tatsächlichen Ausbreitung kriegerischer Gewalt in Regionen führen. In diesem Zusammenhang werden auch die Gewaltdynamiken und die Interaktionen der Akteure sowie die Motive und Intentionen ihres Handelns betrachtet. Zur Beantwortung dieser Fragen wird ein theoretisches Konzept auf sozialkonstruktivistischer Basis entwickelt, das die bisherigen theoretischen Schwächen im Umgang mit regionalen Konfliktsystemen ausgleicht. Von besonderer Bedeutung sind das Zusammenspiel von Konflikt, Region und Sicherheit und die daraus resultierende Öffnung der methodologischen wie auch der Akteursperspektive. Das theoretische Konzept der regionalen Konfliktsysteme wird mit Hilfe einer multi-Value Qualitative Comparative Analysis (mvQCA) anhand der Kriege mit regionaler Komponente in Sub-Sahara Afrika seit dem Ende des Kalten Krieges getestet.

Mit seinen bedeutenden Öl- und Gasvorkommen sowie seinen wichtigen Transit-Pipelines hat der Kaukasus eine herausragende strategische und sicherheitspolitische Bedeutung für Europa. Das macht ihn heute zum Zankapfel und zur Krisenregion. Darüber vergisst man allerdings oft seine reiche Kultur und große landschaftliche Schönheit. Namhafte Experten beleuchten in diesem Buch Armenien, Aserbaidschan und Georgien, die russischen Regionen im Nordkaukasus (Tschetschenien, Dagestan, Inguschetien) sowie die Nachbarstaaten Türkei und Iran. Die großen Konfliktregionen – Abchasien, Süd-Ossetien, Berg-Karabach sowie Tschetschenien werden ausführlich historisch und politisch beschrieben. Mit seinen Länder-, Konflikt- und Kulturanalysen bietet das Buch einen umfassenden Einblick in die «Krisenregion» Kaukasus.
