Peacekeeping and Critical Theory

Wednesday 6 April 2022

Pugh, Michael. 2004. International Peacekeeping 11, no. 1: 39-58.

This text views peace operations through the lens of governance where the distribution of aid and resources is employed to both reinforce the values of the liberal peace and portray them as being universally applicable and desirable. The article also draws attention to the use of peace as a positive signifier, emphasizing a moral concern for order and security, and outlines potential solutions, such as reform to the United Nations, that put critical peacebuilding theories into practice.
