A new contribution to the field of varieties of peace has been recently published in International Studies Review. The article "Friends, Fellows and Foes: A New Framework for Studying Relational Peace" is authored by Varieties of Peace members Johanna Söderström, Malin Åkebo and Anna Jarstad.
This contribution delves into the concept of relational peace as a new approach in order to expand the current theoretical frameworks surrounding peace as a concept, highlighting its methodological implications and addressing its advantages. It shows how peace and war can coexist in webs of multiple interactions and how actors understand this relationships, as a way of studying varieties of peace.
