This chapter provides an analytical framework for an understanding of peacemaking, set within the academic discourse on the subject. It sets out the historical context within which thinking about peace developed from ancient Greece and Rome to current exponents. It presents key themes important for twenty-first century peacemaking, notably the complex nature of contemporary conflicts and the global nature of the forces exerted on them, root causes, sub and supra state structures and multi-level challenges. It highlights the global character of the twenty-first century peace challenge and the necessity for any response to be cosmopolitian-multicultural, universalist-globalist and focused on accepting diversity and transcending conflict and division through progress on common goals and recognition of common humanity.
