A balanced examination of a key issue for mediators and international lawyers alike, the tension between human rights concerns and practical peacemaking. Waehlisch writes with the authority of one who is both an academic but also a political adviser with plentiful hands on experience in the regions from which he draws his case studies, the Balkans and the Arab world. * Sir Derek Plumbly KCMG, King's College London, former UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon *
A rigorous reflection on the tension between peacemaking and the protection of human rights. The focus on two well-chosen case-studies brings the problem to life, and international law is presented in the light of deeply understood practical experience. This illuminating, thought-provoking work deserves to be read by everyone involved in the law, practice or study of peacemaking, statebuilding, or human rights. * Professor David Feldman, Cambridge University, former Judge of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina *
Is there a law of peace? This insightful book deploys a comparative analysis drawing from the Balkans to the Middle East across the scholarly-practitioner divide to elucidate this now evolving normative development. * Professor Ruti Teitel, New York Law School *
Imperfect Peace is an extraordinarily useful and original book that brings together concerns and areas of scholarship and practice that do not always communicate well. Grounded in actual cases it is a "must read" for anyone interested in peace and the evolution of the international system. * Professor Andrea Bartoli, Dean School of Diplomacy and International Relations, Seton Hall University *
Practitioners and scholars alike will find the monograph helpful not only to understand better the relationship between international law and peace, but how to navigate and use it to best effect. Well-informed, Waehlisch offers a sober yet progressive account with insights about real-world dynamics along with thoughtful suggestions for recurrent problems. Those facing the challenges of transitions will find this a timely and indispensable reference. * Professor John Packer, University of Ottawa, UN DPA Standby Team Constitutions and Process Design Expert *
