This is a critical investigation of the stalled and dysfunctional peace that often follows civil wars and an examination of how peace processes and peace accords can be revived. The author is a well-known and established writer in the field. Post-conflict reconstruction is topical and Iraq is a huge test-case. This book poses serious questions about the quality of peace experienced in post-peace accord societies. It adopts a critical perspective on peacemaking. It unpacks the notion of the `liberal democratic peace` as the key organizing principle behind internationally supported peace processes and accords. This book investigates stalled and dysfunctional peace processes and peace accords in societies experiencing civil wars. Using a critical and comparative perspective, it offers strategies for rejuvenating and re-orientating stalled peace processes and peace accords so that they are more able to foster sustainable and inclusive peace.
