"Despite its multiple limitations as a peace actor, the EU has been able to contribute to peace in different countries affected by protracted conflict. Going further than the debate about what the EU should do, the kind of power it represents and the pertinence of the liberal peace building model, this book explores Colombia, and beyond, to understand how the EU has used Official Development Aid to work with Civil Society Organizations and recipient governments for peacebuilding. Castaneda focuses on the European capacities to support multiple transitions to peace and proposes both a handy definition of peacebuilding at the intersection of three dimensions: security, development and democracy, and a framework for analyzing complex dynamics in conflict-affected countries, useful for designing international action. Mobilising tools from peace and conflict studies, development economics, sociology, public policy and international relations, this book will be a valuable resource to a range of scholars, uniquely providing a consideration of both sides of the cooperation programme: the international actor and the recipient society."-- Provided by publisher.
