Ending of conflict and the quality of peace

 

In this lecture Professor Peter Wallensteen will discuss the different ways in which wars and conflicts can be ended. He distinguishes between victory and negotiated settlement. He demonstrates that victories seldom are as decisive as many believe, and that negotiated agreements have a better record than often assumed. In this lecture Professor Wallensteen will cover matters such as negotiations and mediation for ending conflicts and the implementation of peace with respect to exiting violence.

Peter Wallensteen is Senior Professor at the Department of Peace and Conflict Research, Uppsala University and the Richard G. Starmann Sr. Research Professor of University of Notre Dame in the US. His book Quality Peace. Peacebuilding, Victory and World Order (Oxford University Press 2015) covers some of the topics of this lecture.
He was the holder of the Dag Hammarskjöld Chair 1985-2012 and was the founder and director of the Uppsala Conflict Data Program (1978-2015).
