Civilian Peacekeeping: Preventing Violence and Making Space for Democracy

"This book serves as a guide to unarmed civilian peace teams, also known as civilian peacekeeping. It explains the theory and practice of these civilian peacekeeping teams and can be used as a guide for planning complex peacebuilding missions. The book also explores the theoretical assumptions that underlie these types of civilian interventions. It explores successful and unsuccessful attempts at civilian peacekeeping to provide insights into these questions. While lessons may be learned from past experiences, each intervention will have its own set of contextually dependent answers."
