Building Sustainable Peace


This co-publication of the United Nations University Press and the University of Alberta Press contains a number of papers which examine issues involved in post-conflict reconciliation and peacebuilding; topics of particular current concern following the recent conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Aspects of peacebuilding strategies include disarming warring parties, restoring order, decommissioning and destroying weapons, repatriating refugees, providing advisory and training support for security personnel, monitoring elections, de-mining and other forms of demilitarisation, providing technical assistance, advancing efforts to protect human rights, reforming and strengthening institutions of governance including monitoring and supervising elections, and promoting participation in the political process. Many of the papers were presented at a symposium held in Alberta, Canada in March 2000, which included academics, policy advisors and practitioners in the field of peace studies and peacebuilding.
