In the Berghof Handbook Dialogue Series No.10, Ulrike Hopp-Nishanka, Oliver P. Richmond, Hannes Siebert and Borja Paladini Adell add on to the debate on peace infrastructures from different perspectives, aiming to lead the debate forward on the emerging practice and theory. The authors each give examples of peace infrastructures that they have been involved in as practitioners and/or academics, inviting for joint reflection on past experiences and possible practices for the future.
Drawing from examples from Sri Lanka, Nepal, South Africa, Colombia, Lebanon and Cyprus, to name a few, the authors discuss whether and how peace should be given “an address”—and if so, how we best can support peace infrastructures while avoiding pitfalls.
