summary
This book considers how global capitalism affects fragile peace processes in countries suffering under years of violent conflict. While these countries benefit from few of the resources made available through a global economy, they are nonetheless woven within, and reliant upon, the economic and political relationships such an economy demands. By including the work of anthropologists, economists, religious studies experts, sociologists and political scientists, this book presents a broad yet thorough exploration of the complexities of peacebuilding in a free market. “Much of the current research on peacebuilding focuses on domestic factors while failing to take into account both the international political context and the pressures of market liberalization on fragile peace processes,” the editors write. “Indeed, what are apparently localized conflicts depend upon resource flows that extend well beyond national borders.” Included in the text are specific studies of Africa, Asia, and the Middle East as well as considerations of conflicts on the global scale.
