War and Peace in Transition

Changing Roles of External Actors

Karin Aggestam, Annika Björkdahl

The post-Cold War era is characterised by shifting patterns of war and peace. The new demands and challenges facing external actors, such as international peacekeeping forces and mediators, are therefore manifold.

In War and Peace in Transision the authors address some of the critical and transformative issues in war and peacemaking, such as the roles of private military security companies and the use of force in peace support operations. The authors discuss how states, organisations and individuals contribute to conflict resolution. Another focus is the challenge of coordinating various peacemaking efforts.

The contributors – scholars in the field of Peace and Conflict Research – take a systematic approach to analysing som of these transient aspects of war and peace with empirical cases ranging from Iraq, Israel-Palestine, Sri Lanka to the Armenian genocide.
