Joachim Michael & Sebastián Martínez Fernández 
Entanglements Between Peace and Violence 
New Interdisciplinary Approaches

Peace and violence are opposites, but they do not exclude each other entirely. Taking this observation as starting point, this book investigates why there is so much violence in what we call peace. If peace and violence necessarily coexist, what does that mean for the idea of peace, and how is violence to be thought of? The contributors reflect on the ambivalent relations between peace and violence and discuss that while full peace cannot be achieved, efforts against violence and the prospects for peaceful coexistence never completely disappear. This interdisciplinary debate combines points of view of the Global North with perceptions from the Global South.
