Building Sustainable Peace - Understanding the dynamics and foundations of Environmental Peacebuilding

This project is focusing on the question how sustainable peace can be build after armed conflicts. I focus especially on the dynamics and foundations of environmental peacebuilding, as the link between post-conflict peacebuilding and environmental governance and natural resource management. The argument underlying this project is: to build peace we need to acknowledge and understand the long-term interplay of social, political, and ecological processes in post-war countries. As these processes interact and divisively shape the post-war landscape, I argue that it is essential to build a peace that is ecologically sensitive, while equally socially and politically relevant and desirable – I call that sustainable peace.
