Integrated Peacebuilding addresses the importance of weaving peacebuilding methods into diverse sectors including development, humanitarian assistance, gender, business, media, health, and the environment - areas where such work is needed the most. Incorporating peacebuilding approaches in these fields is critical for transforming today's protracted conflicts into tomorrow's sustainable peace. Covering both theory and practice, Dr. Zelizer and his team of leading academics and practitioners present original essays discussing the infrastructure of the peacebuilding field (outlining key actors, donors, and underlying motivations) as well as the ethical dilemmas created by modern conflict. Exploring both the challenges and lessons to be found in this emerging field, Integrated Peacebuilding is perfect for courses on peacebuilding, conflict resolution, international development, and related fields.

Editorial Reviews

"In my opinion, there isn't another book in the field quite like Integrated Peacebuilding. The range of topics and the depth of analysis in each of the fourteen chapters is simply awe-inspiring. The book also delicately straddles development theory, international relations, and peace studies in an accessible way. A remarkable feat." —Clement Adibe, DePaul University "I have rarely seen a book that is so logically constructed and conceptually tied together as this one. I am impressed with this volume because it offers a perfect blend of academic thinking and application. It also systematically analyzes the various aspects of peacemaking, peacebuilding, and conflict resolution." —Dipak K. Gupta, San Diego State University "Words count. Definitions are important. When concepts are not clear the action that follows is not as effective as it could be. This book is a disciplined attempt to bring coherence to an emerging field. It is a must read for any student and practitioner of peacebuilding. Policymakers will be well served by taking the integrated approach suggested in these pages. All scholars will appreciate the breadth of a book that is clearly advancing our shared understanding of a dynamic field for study and practice." —Andrea Bartoli, George Mason University
