about

Western struggles—and failures—to create functioning states in countries such as Iraq or Afghanistan have inspired questions about whether statebuilding projects are at all viable, or whether they make the lives of their intended beneficiaries better or worse. In this groundbreaking book, Oliver Richmond asks why statebuilding has been so hard to achieve, and argues that a large part of the problem has been Westerners’ failure to understand or engage with what local peoples actually want and need. He interrogates the liberal peacebuilding industry, asking what it assumes, what it is getting wrong, and how it could be more effective.

Editorial Reviews

'Avoiding easy and romanticised notions of the local, this book makes a very convincing case for a contextualised yet transversal post-liberal peace by focusing on subaltern forms of agency, transgression and solidarity.' - Ilan Kapoor, author of The Postcolonial Politics of Development
