Abstract [en]

Incomplete and insufficient university programmes in the field of Peace and Conflict Resolution have led to an important gap in knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA) among peacebuilders and peacekeepers. In theory, experiential learning through problem-based learning (PBL) and simulations should be able to address this gap. This article explores the opportunities and limits of this pedagogical approach to educating peace actors using the case of the Carana simulation delivered at Linne University (LNU), Sweden. Using mixed-methods, this article confirms the added- value of PBL in the development of KSAs but identifies challenges peculiar to the field of Peace and Conflict Studies that limit its effects. PBL has a clear added-value for the development of skills in learners with a consistent development of professional skills. It can be used to foster conscientization as a precursor to transforming societies towards nonviolence and justice.

Abstract [en]

Peace research has abandoned thepursuit of positive peace becauseof a profound commitment to anontology of violence. By assumingthat the world is shaped by arbitrarypower relations, scholars workingon the liberal and post-liberal peaceend up focusing their research onnegative peace. The article developsa critique of this ontology ofviolence assumed by the Realist,Liberal and Critical traditions whichconceals the possibility of positivepeace. Following the lead of CharlesTaylor, it locates the philosophicalshackles that stifle peace research inthe immanent frame that underpinsthe political work of Hobbes and hiscontemporaries. The article outlinesthe contours of an ontology of peaceand revisits the concept of eirenismto conceptualise positive peace.

Abstract [en]

Peace operations are increasingly multi-dimensional and are affecting ever more aspects of life at the grassroots level. While this evolution is necessary, it has created a tension in the field of legitimacy. Indeed, how can the United Nations possibly legitimise its actions in a domain traditionally subject to domestic laws and norms? International and domestic standards of legitimacy are clashing but neither of them is fully adapted to the particular case of peace operations. This article outlines a third approach to legitimacy centred on the UN Charter which incorporates the views of the entire legitimacy constituency of peace operations deployed in volatile environments.

Abstract [en]

Scholars of International Politics have recently come to grip with theglobal resurgence of religion. Since the inception of the field of International Politics,the secularisation thesis had been taken for granted and religion dismissedas unimportant. But in line with the current transformation affecting societiesworldwide as well as with the re-consideration of the secularisation thesis bySociologists, new resources must be developed within IR to better understandcurrent events. While theories and concepts have been developed within Sociologyand the Political Sciences, no such tools are available in International Politics.Thus, this article provides a tentative theory of secularisation drawing onresources endogenous to the field. Drawing on recent advances in the broadlyConstructivist tradition, this article re-interprets secularisation as a protracted internationalcrisis of legitimacy.
