Regeneration and peacebuilding in war-torn societies is a fast-growing area of interest in world politics. The book is an original and timely contribution to the study of post-conflict transition through an examination of various aspects of regeneration and detailed analysis of examples of intent.

Four issues are highlighted in particular:

- the legacies of modern conflict in the transitions to relative peace
- the question of ownership and accountability in the interactions between internal and external actors
- the need for coherent responses to regeneration
- the importance of case-specific approaches.

The book's purpose is to encourage students, policy-makers and practitioners (in governments, intergovernmental organisations, international and local non-governmental organisations) to understand and reflect on processes designed to promote social stability and relative peace - and to re-examine the nature of the tasks they confront and their responses. The authors represent perspectives from law, political economy, social work, development studies, anthropology and international relations.
