About this product
- DescriptionThe Puzzle of Peace moves beyond defining peace as the absence of war and develops a broader conceptualization and explanation for the increasing peacefulness of the international system. The authors track the rise of peace as a new phemen in international history starting after 1945. International peace has increased because international society has developed a set of rms dealing with territorial conflict, by far the greatest source of international war over previous centuries. These rms prohibit the use of military force in resolving territorial disputes and acquiring territory, thereby promoting border stability. This includes the prohibition of the acquisition of territory by military means as well as attempts by secessionist groups to form states through military force. International rms for managing international conflict have been accompanied by increased mediation and adjudication as means of managing existing territorial conflicts.
