About this book

This volume brings to the fore the spatial dimension of specific places and sites, and assesses how they condition – and are conditioned by – conflict and peace processes. By marrying spatial theories with theories of peace and conflict, the contributors propose a new research agenda to investigate where peace and conflict take place.

Reviews

Spaitalizing Peace and Conflict is a timely and impressive volume that explores the complex and co-constitutive relations between peace and conflict, and space and place. ... The volume brings together scholars from an impressively wide range of disciplines who draw on diverse methods and methodologies, from quantitative analysis of large data sets to narrative analysis and ethnography. This is a refreshing and productive approach which balances diversity with coherence ... . In sum, this is an innovative, informative and engaging volume that will be an excellent resource for researchers and students of peace from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds.” (Dr Fiona McConnell, University of Oxford)
