"Peaceland. Conflict Resolution and the Everyday Politics of International Intervention"

Chair Paolo Foradori - School of International Studies

Séverine Autesserre - Barnard College. Columbia University


Jens Woelk - School of International Studies

Roberto Belloni - Department of Sociology and Social Research

“Peaceland” suggests a new explanation for why international peace interventions often fail to reach their full potential. Based on several years of ethnographic research in conflict zones around the world, it demonstrates that everyday elements – such as the expatriates’ social habits and usual approaches to understanding their areas of operation – strongly influence peacebuilding effectiveness.
