Peacebuilding, a peer-reviewed journal published by Taylor & Francis Group, provides a space for debate, disagreement, critique, and the advancement of theoretical and empirical knowledge on peace and conflict in general, and peacebuilding in particular. We see the need to investigate how peace may be built at different levels. We have concerns about the ontological and epistemological constraints of placing such ambitions within a specifically Western modernization and state framework. We are open to much broader conceptualizations and approaches across a range of disciplines. Adapted from the source document.
