This new work showcases the main debates and controversies associated with peacebuilding. In particular, it seeks to go beyond a simple explanation of peacebuilding institutions and projects to unpack the ideas and ideologies that underpin the subject. Recent years have seen significant successes and failures in peacebuilding, reforms among international organisations, and increased prominence awarded to local peacebuilding actors. The articles in this major work capture these changes and collectively present a state-of-the-art account of contemporary peacebuilding
Preventing violent conflicts and establishing comprehensive lasting peace in some of the world's most turbulent regions has become the new global imperative. But to be effective, peacebuilding must be a multilateral, not a unilateral process. Even for the world's sole surviving superpower, promoting and sustaining durable peace requires communication, co-ordination, co-operation, and collaboration between local, national and international actors, nongovernmental as well as governmental.

This volume explores one of the most critical issues of our time: whether heritage can contribute to a more peaceful society and future. It reflects a core belief that heritage can provide solutions to reconciling peoples and demonstrates the amount of significant work being carried out internationally. Based round the core themes of new and emerging ideas around heritage and peace, heritage and peace-building in practice, and heritage, peace-building and sites, the twenty contributions seek to raise perceptions and understanding of heritage-based peace-building practices. Responding to the emphasis placed on conflict, war and memorialization, they reflect exploratory yet significant steps towards reclaiming the history, theory, and practice of peacebuilding as serious issues for heritage in contemporary society. The geographical scope of the book includes contributions from Europe, notably the Balkans and Northern Ireland, the Middle East, and Kenya.
