Sample text

But these governments have barely begun to address how the community of states helps put a state back together after a conflict caused when a government abuses its people or when citizens tear a country apatt from the inside and slaughter one another. International law has traditionally focused primarily on protecting the sovereignty of states, not the human beings within them. Traditional legal standards of international behavior have, for instance, underscored the unacceptability of military intervention or political interference in another country's internal affairs.

Work that has focused on conflict between states needs to blend with the study of conflict within communities. Work that has focused on resolving conflict needs to meld with insights into developing democratic thought and practice and building civil society. Work on the behavior of groups needs to be set alongside study of state behavior. Work on the processes of continuous interaction within and between groups needs to be developed further, along with studies of institutional decision making. This is a book about whole human beings in whole bodies politic.

An intrastate conflict often severs these connections and drives people into their own groups of like-minded persons bound together in confrontation with adversaries. The connective tissue, the sinews, the ligaments that made a whole body politic work are torn apart. Mediators may negotiate the terms for ending violence, but they rarely pay attention to reconnecting the torn tissues that might help the body politic function again as a whole. An analysis of what tissue needs to be reconstructed and approaches to restoring it is an essential part of peacemaking and peace-building.
