The Ethics of Peace: An Ethical Approach to the Practice of Peace Mediation

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The involvement of an increased number of governmental and nongovernmental actors in peace mediation is a worldwide phenomenon. While United Nations strengthens its institutionalised peacemaking capacity, high profile individuals, governments and private institutions are more active than ever in finding peaceful solutions to armed conflicts in places such as Uganda, Sudan, Sri Lanka or Colombia, to mention a few.Considering the renew heyday experienced by peace mediation, it is not trivial to inquire about how to conduct such an activity with professionalism and efficiency. Can an ethical approach enrich the understanding and practice of peace mediation? Is a ‘code of conduct’ or guideline needed? If yes, could such a code pretend to have a universal validity? This paper is an initial exploration as to how the epistemological collaboration between ethics and peace mediation theories might promote better practices in ending armed conflicts through negotiation. It argues that the ethical approach, which is not rare in discussions about war—i.e. just war theories—and international affairs in general, has been neglected in peace mediation and in light of global trends it is more necessary than ever.
