The Identity Politics of Peacebuilding

Civil Society in War-Torn Sri Lanka

by Orjuela, Camilla

The Identity Politics of Peace Building looks at civil society and peace movements in the context of the identity-based armed conflict(s) in Sri Lanka. It focuses specifically on the identity politics implied in attempts at mobilizing a movement for peace and shows why civil society groups engaging in ‘peace work’ often fail to increase the sense of security among civilians, and to challenge the underlying structures of war.
