Partners in Peace" challenges the global perception and assumptions of the role played by civil society peace building operations and offers a radically new perspective on how international organizations can support this effort. Framing the debate using case studies in Africa and Central America, Mathijs van Leeuwen examines different meanings of peace building, the practices and politics of interpreting conflict, and how planned interventions work out.

Mathijs van Leeuwen looked into images, and assumptions, of civil-society peacebuilding and its support by international development organizations, and how this relates to politics and practices of peacebuilding on the ground

Mathijs van Leeuwen looked into images, and assumptions, of civil-society peacebuilding and its support by international development organizations, and how this relates to politics and practices of peacebuilding on the ground. It is built principally on a series of case studies of peacebuilding interventions and organizations working in southern Sudan, Burundi and the African Great Lakes Region, and Guatemala.

Non-State Actors in International Law, Politics and Governance Series. The proliferation of non-state actors in the international system over the last three decades has increased the need for a broader theoretical analysis and empirical validation. The series explores the capabilities and impact of non-state actors, such as privately-based transnational corporations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), international criminal organizations, and liberation movements, as well as intergovernmental organizations (in which NGO’s often participate).

Civil society actors gained headway by adapting the discourse on migrant . Taken together, they critique a model of civil society that is ‘made from above’

Civil society actors gained headway by adapting the discourse on migrant rights to Singapore's socio-cultural and political context in three ways: by reframing rights claims into a moral appeal; by appealing to the cost-benefit logics of Singaporean employers of migrant domestic workers; and by situating the provision of migrant labour protections as a relative market position. Taken together, they critique a model of civil society that is ‘made from above’. This paper explores the role of International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs) in adult education as one instrument of global civil society to effect social change.

Kissling addresses the topic of civil society participation in the nuclear non-proliferation regime

Kissling addresses the topic of civil society participation in the nuclear non-proliferation regime. The regime qualifies well for this objective since it features, given its characteristics as a treaty regime in the international security field, notable legal avenues for civil society participation. The study takes on a twofold perspective. On the one hand, the empirical question whether civil society can contribute to the evolution of regimes in the security field is addressed, especially when it comes to security cooperation

Though civil society peacebuilding efforts in developing countries have been .

Though civil society peacebuilding efforts in developing countries have been instrumental in influencing positive change, their potential remains greatly undocumented and inadequately tapped in developing countries. Self-awareness of civil society actors in terms of the existing opportunities for change is instrumental in building more solid and strategic alliances for a positive change. He further looks at peace in terms of negative peace, which entails the absence of violence through peacekeeping and positive peace entailing the structural transformation through peacemaking and peace building.

Non-state actors, even when not exercising any sort of territorial control, also exist in a concrete . Other non-state corporations stand out in this respect-may not be interested at all in international legal status

Non-state actors, even when not exercising any sort of territorial control, also exist in a concrete space that is enclosed and delimited from other spaces. For instance, the spatial relations of multinational corporations are of a global, networked, nodal nature; they are delimited from other relations that have no bearing on the corporation’s activities. Other non-state corporations stand out in this respect-may not be interested at all in international legal status. By lobbying they may have an influence on state and international regulation anyway, while at the same time regulating themselves via non-traditional sources.

How do international organizations support local peacebuilding? Do they really understand conflict? Partners in Peace challenges the global perceptions and assumptions of the roles played by civil society in peacebuilding and offers a radically new perspective on how international organizations can support such efforts. Framing the debate using case studies from Africa and Central America, the author examines different meanings of peacebuilding, the practices and politics of interpreting conflict and how planned interventions work out. Comparing original views with contemporary perceptions of non-state actors, Partners in Peace includes many recommendations for NGOs involved in peacebuilding and constructs a new understanding on how these possible solutions relate to politics and practices on the ground. Concise in both theoretical and empirical analysis, this book is an important contribution to our understanding of civil society's role in building sustainable peace.
