- Building Peace in Post-Conflict Situations
|Coordinator(s)||Rebecca Spence (email@example.com)|
This unit explores the distinctions between the processes of peacekeeping, peacemaking and peace building in conflict situations. It focuses on the main tasks in recovery and reconstruction using detailed case studies from Asia, the Pacific, Africa and Europe. It explores best practice for creating a stable peace through community development and governmental intervention. Topics include: the role played by government and NGOs; decommissioning of weapons and demobilisation of combatants; economic and socio-cultural reconstruction; the rebuilding of the education and health sectors, gender issues and peace building at a community level. Controversial aspects of the 'liberal peace' ideal are also examined.
