Richmond suggests that this volume illustrates the emergence of a new stage in the development of peacebuilding: strategic peacebuilding. Strategic peacebuilding goes beyond security-focused strategies that build on the lessons of liberal peace, focusing on sustainable peacebuilding at all levels of society. He synthesizes insights from the volume's authors and from his own fieldwork in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Timor-Leste, and the Solomon Islands, focusing especially on the role of the "local" in strategic peacebuilding. From this volume, Richmond believes, emerges a vision of a postliberal justpeace that is more robust, inclusive, locally informed, and contextually sensitive than dominant conceptualizations of peace.
