Summary note
"Through the lens of realism, peace is a macro-level top-down outcome that is primarily governed by state behavior. The spectrum of peace concepts associated with realism primarily relate to peacemaking and peacekeeping. Leading proponents of realism do not grapple with peacebuilding. Peacebuilding is a post-conflict process that transitions a society from war to peace, which includes a variety of sub-elements including: development of infrastructure, sustainable economy, public health system, institution building, rule of law & human rights, humanitarian aid, peacekeeping, security & disarmament, education, justice & reconciliation forums "-- Provided by publisher.
