As contemporary studies have increasingly linked jus post bellum to the concept of peace, or the law of peace, so approaches towards the idea of a 'just peace' have diverged. It is variously argued that a just peace is an elusive ideal, that it is predominantly procedural justice, and that it is marked by concession and compromise.
In this volume, the third output of a major research project on Jus Post Bellum, Carsten Stahn, Jens Iverson and Jennifer Easterday bring together a team of leading experts to explore the issues surrounding a just peace. They demonstrate that a just peace is not only related to form and process, but involves substantive justice, namely a just order with common rules, just institutions and arrangements, which secure peace, procedures to maintain peace, and a sense of societal acceptance.
