This Companion examines contemporary challenges in Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) and offers practical solutions to these problems.

Bringing together chapters from new and established global scholars, the volume explores and critiques the foundations of Peace and Conflict Studies in an effort to advance the discipline in light of contemporary local and global actors.

The book examines the following eight specific components of Peace and Conflict Studies:

  • Peace and conflict studies praxis
  • Structure–agency tension as it relates to social justice, nonviolence, and relationship building
  • Gender, masculinity, and sexuality
  • The role of partnerships and allies in racial, ethnic, and religious peacebuilding
  • Culture and identity
  • Critical and emancipatory peacebuilding
  • International conflict transformation and peacebuilding
  • Global responses to conflict.

It argues that new critical and emancipatory peacebuilding and conflict transformation strategies are needed to address the complex cultural, economic, political, and social conflicts of the 21st century.

This book will be of much interest to students of peace and conflict studies, peace studies, conflict resolution, transitional justice, reconciliation studies, social justice studies, and international relations.
