Authoritative but accessible, Peace Terms has been used by a wide audience, from peacebuilding practitioners and scholars to students in college courses, from participants in Academy courses and trainings to high school students doing research.
To help these readers navigate this cross-disciplinary field, the USIP glossary answers such questions as: What exactly is a “conflict entrepreneur”? What do we mean by a “resource curse”? And perhaps most importantly, what is the difference between peacekeeping, peacemaking, and peacebuilding?
As with the first edition, the editor has consulted a wide range of online and print sources, as well as the senior staff at USIP, in the process of producing the latest version of the glossary.
• Contains over 350 short definitions, including over 70 new or revised terms.
• Covers a wide range of complex and often confusing concepts.
• Used by practitioners, scholars, and students.
