After considering the critical study of liberal peace, this chapter outlines in detail the foundations and intellectual origins of liberal peace theory. It then moves beyond this literature by introducing a conceptual framework for ‘liberal peace transitions’ that explains both the individual components of liberal peace and the different forms of liberal peace that can be derived from these components. This book examines the nature of the peace created through different aspects of contemporary peacebuilding. It examines the development of the discourse of the liberal peace and compares this evolution with the development of practical approaches for peace, in the context of peacebuilding, the work of international organisations, donors, agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the contributions of key liberal states.

Keywords:   liberal peace theory, liberal peace transitions, peace-building, international organisations, NGOs
