Description - Contemporary Security Analysis and Copenhagen Peace Research by Stefano Guzzini
Peace research emerged an oppositional movement to mainstream thinking about power politics and nuclear deterrence. During the 1990s, peace research and security studies largely found a common agenda and merged into the mainstream of International Relations and is now one of several streams of critical approach within the field. This volume brings together internationally prominent scholars to take stock of contemporary peace research and security studies and explore its present challenges and future developments. It begins with a re-appraisal of the very identity of contemporary "peace research", and then presents current research agendas and conceptual innovations in the global and larger European context. The volume pays particular attention to the significant contributions made by the Copenhagen Peace Research Institute and associated scholars to this field. The book addresses students and scholars in International Relations and in the peace research community. Its deliberately concise chapters allow for an updated, accessible and broad coverage of contemporary peace and security studies.
