Abstract:People crossculturally long for peace. But, what is peace? And how are cultures of peace enabled? These significant questions are explored in order to better understand how to sustain peace locally and globally. The result is an ethnographic assemblage which contributes to the Anthropology of Peace, an emerging genre. This ethnography moves flexibly along native, non-native, and involved-citizen anthropology. Geographically, the research is situated in Cyprus, an ethnically divided Mediterranean island where two major communities, Greek and Turkish Cypriots, have been contributing to a transition from separative to sociative peace. Through vital restorative peace processes, Cypriots have been overcoming enmity and separation, enabling cultures of peace despite elusive political agreements. Their efforts locally promote peace globally. This research demonstrates that peace is sociocultural as much as political; peace is perceived by the people as dynamic, contextual, and multidimensional, going beyond an absence of armed conflict. The transformation of cultures of enmity into cultures of peace is shown to be a complex, unpredictable and long process, entailing disappointing and rewarding moments. People's direct involvement is fundamental and collaboration between local and international actors is necessitated. Culture plays a crucial role in bringing people together, folklore animates their efforts, and sharing fun moments strengthens their peacebuilding. The political and pragmatic are important in enabling cultures of peace, but not adequate. The small matters, the daily experience makes a difference and the symbolic is as equally important as the pragmatically concrete. Finally, this research highlights that cultures of peace journey through rehumanization, sociability, and belongingness. Sociative peace, which presupposes rehumanization, brings people together in reciprocal relations, strengthening sociability and enhancing belongingness. Sociative peace constitutes the soul for enabling cultures of peace; cultures that enable people to fulfill their needs and enjoy life. Overall, this study exemplifies that we can study peace in order to enhance peace parting from the theoretical paradigm of studying war in order to promote peace. It explicates that human beings require peace as the presence, among other things, of justice, laughter, and human relations to remain social, so that anthropos' longing for peace is transformed into creative daily lives.
