Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the role of civil society in peace and peace-building efforts. It argues that civil society is conceptually relevant precisely because it concerns a plurality of visions that are articulated in a plurality of ways, all of which ultimately contribute to the peaceful interactions of human beings. It highlights the role played by civil society in the post-Cold War peace and peace-building agendas, mirroring its trajectory in the fields of development and democracy.
