  • The Transformation of Peaceby Oliver P. Richmond

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 44.00

    This book examines the transformation of the discourse and praxis of peace, from its early beginnings in the literature on war and power, to the development of intellectual and theoretical discourses of peace, contrasting this with the development of practical approaches to peace, and examining the intellectual and policy evolution regarding peace. more...

  • Palgrave Advances in Peacebuildingby Oliver P. Richmond

    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 34.00

    The quality of the peace arrived at via liberal peacebuilding approaches has been poor. The related statebuilding praxis has generally been unable to respond to its critics. What is at stake is a recognition of peacebuilding's everyday political, social, economic, and cultural dynamics. This indicates the emergence of a post-liberal form of peace. more...

  • Mediating in Cyprusby Oliver P. Richmond

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 65.95

    The UN peacemaking operation in Cyprus has been one of the longest of its kind, but has resulted in discarded proposals, non-papers or reports. This study investigates the Cypriot parties' views of peacemaking, to shed light on the problem, and on the theoretical debates surrounding mediation. more...

  • Peace Formation and Political Order in Conflict Affected Societiesby Oliver P. Richmond

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 18.99 US$ 16.33

    International actors, including key states like the US and organizations such as the UN, EU, African Union, and World Bank, and a range of NGOs, have long been confronted with the question of how to achieve an emancipatory form of peace. This book argues that locally negotiated peace agreements offer important navigation points for policymakers, and... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2001; US$ 165.00

The authors, who comprise both scholars and UN practitioners, cover a wide range of pressing current... more...

  • Hybrid Forms of Peaceby Oliver P. Richmond; Audra Mitchell

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 110.00

    This book examines the role of everyday action in accepting, resisting and reshaping interventions, and the unique forms of peace that emerge from the interactions between local and international actors. Building on critiques of liberal peace-building, it redefines critical peace and conflict studies, based on new research from 16 countries. more...

  • Liberal Peace Transitionsby Oliver P. Richmond; Jason Franks

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2011; Not Available

    This book, newly available in paperback, examines the nature of 'liberal peace': the common aim of the international community's approach to post-conflict statebuilding.
