What kind of peace is possible in the post-9/11 world? Is sustainable peace an illusion in a world where foreign military interventions are replacing peace negotiations as starting points for postwar reconstruction? Grappling with these questions, this book presents six provocative case studies authored by respected peacebuilding practitioners in their own societies.
Interdisciplinary Perspectives, Global Contexts
Using original case studies to show how a range of communities deal with the forces of globalization, this book redraws the conceptual maps through which community, globalization, and autonomy are understood.
Achieving UN Recognition
With a focus on international law, Henderson analyzes what the UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples means for Indigenous peoples around the world and for Canada.
