VoP's Special Issue is out now!

Varieties of Peace has just released its Special Issue Exploring Varieties of Peace, edited by founding members Elisabeth Olivius and Malin Åkebo.

This Special Issue, published in Journal of Peace & Development, aims to advance conceptual understandings, as well as empirical analyses, of peace that provides new insights into the variety of ways in which peace is manifested, experienced and understood. The contributions in the special issue capture varieties of peace between and beyond dichotomous conceptions of positive versus negative peace, or successful versus failed peace processes, and showcases a diversity of approaches to analyzing peace.

The full Special Issue can be consulted here.
