  • Peace in International Relationsby Oliver Richmond

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 50.95

    This book examines the way in which peace is conceptualized in IR theory, a topic which has until now been largely overlooked. The volume explores the way peace has been implicitly conceptualized within the different strands of IR theory, and in the policy world as exemplified through practices in the peacebuilding efforts since the end of the... more...

  • A Post-Liberal Peaceby Oliver Richmond

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 45.95

    This book examines how the liberal peace experiment of the post-Cold War environment has failed to connect with its target populations, which have instead set about transforming it according to their own local requirements. Liberal peacebuilding has caused a range of unintended consequences. These emerge from the liberal peace?s internal contradictions,... more...

  • 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...

  • Challenges to Peacebuildingby Newman Edward; Richmond Oliver

    United Nations University Press 2006; US$ 37.00

    Many ceasefires and peace agreements in civil conflict are initially unsuccessful. Some give way to renewed, and often escalating, violence. In other cases, peace processes have become interminably protracted: lengthy and circular negotiations in which concessions are rare. Given the huge material and human costs of a failed peace process, the international... 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...

  • Maintaining Order, Making Peaceby Oliver P. Richmond

    Palgrave Macmillan 2001; US$ 175.00

    This study explores three generations of approaches to ending conflict and examines how, in the context of the failings of the Westphalian international system, their peacekeeping, mediation and negotiation, conflict resolution and peacebuilding approaches as well as UN peace operations, and asks via an empirical and theoretical analysis, what role... 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...

  • The Liberal Peace and Post-War Reconstructionby Roger MacGinty; Oliver Richmond

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    The post-Cold War has witnessed enormous levels of western peacekeeping, peacemaking and reconstruction intervention in societies emerging from war. These western-led interventions are often called ?liberal peacebuilding? or ?liberal interventionism?, or statebuilding, and have attracted considerable controversy. In this study, leading proponents... more...

  • Peace: A Very Short Introductionby Oliver P. Richmond

    OUP Oxford 2014; US$ 7.99

    The modern concept of peace has broadened from the mere absence of violence to something much more sophisticated, incorporating terms such as 'peacemaking' and 'conflict resolution'. In this Very Short Introduction, Oliver Richmond explores the evolution of peace in practice and in theory, considering our modern assumptions about peace. more...

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

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 18.99

    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...
