The number of both state-based and non-state conflicts increased in 2022, according to recent conflict trend data.

A newly published book on peacebuilding seeks to improve both prevention of new conflicts and solutions to existing conflicts.

The book examines adaptive peacebuilding through eight case studies from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America, with a particular focus on how China and Japan view and practice peacebuilding.

Edited by Cedric de Coning (Research Professor, Norwegian Institute of International Affairs), Rui Saraiva (Research Fellow, JICA Ogata Research Institute) and Ako Muto (Executive Senior Research Fellow, JICA Ogata Research Institute), the book also explores how peacebuilders design, implement and evaluate programs to sustain peace.

Published by Palgrave Macmillan, the book is open access. The entire book “Adaptive peacebuilding: A new approach to sustaining peace in the 21st centurycan be downloaded for free here.
