Varieties of Peace
The Varieties of Peace Research Network aims to facilitate sustained exchange within the broader networks of academic scholars and practitioners with an interest and expertise in the field of varieties of peace.
We believe that we need a better understanding of what peace is and how it can be studied. Peace processes have often been studied during shorter time periods, usually in lessons-learned evaluations five years after the end of the conflict, departing from theories on conflict. Varieties of Peace instead departs from understandings of peace, its variations in terms of quality and features, and perceives of peace as a dynamic societal process of change.
