On the Law of Peace

This concluding chapter summarizes and brings together the book's central argument for a lex pacificatoria as a new law of the peacemakers. It proposes an ambivalent response to the new lex, and concludes by suggesting a concept of law that is necessary to ‘doing good’ in peace negotiations and when working to implement peace agreements. This concept of law involves six key commitments: to legal pluralism, constitutional pluralism, to recognition of law's performative dimension, to negotiated justice, complex accountability, and to enabling moral and political imagination.

Keywords:   lex pacificatoria, legal pluralism, constitutional pluralism, performativism, negotiated justice, complex accountability, political imagination, moral imagination
