In the second chapter the authors discuss the notion of 'government of peace' and elements which constitute resistance in Northeast India and Bosnia-Herzegovina. They focus on the role of identity as seen through the glasses of ethnicity and gender. They rely on Samaddar's definition of 'government of peace' which in essence constitutes the market-driven reorientation of governance. This reorientation ties security to development and produces resistive subjectivities, according to the authors of this chapter. They claim that North India and Bosnia-Herzegovina were no exception in this regard and they discuss resistance dynamics in the two case studies. Their findings confirm the conclusion of the chapter that 'government of peace' has to adhere to the principle of heterogeneity due to the fact that it has to deal with different subjects.
