Peace Processes and Peace Accords

First Edition
Edited by:


September 2005 | 316 pages | SAGE India
This volume, as part of the South Asian Peace Studies series, looks at peace as a process. It makes a three-fold inquiry into the political dimensions of peace - the process of peace, the contentious issues involved in the peace process, and the ideologies that are in conflict in this process. The essays collectively show that the sustainability of peace depends crucially on a foundation of rights, justice and democracy.
