Abstract:The shift in the nature of conflict in the post Cold War era has presented an array of new and unfamiliar challenges. In an attempt to addresses the unique parameters of intrastate conflict, peace support operations have undergone dramatic changes. This thesis will examine the peacebuilding discourse in order to determine whether the current conceptions and practices of peacebuilding are sufficiently addressing these new conflicts. By reviewing the conceptual and operational aspects of peacebuilding it is demonstrated that in practice, peacebuilding is largely underpinned by a neoliberal agenda. This focus on the twin processes of economic and political liberalization is an insufficient method of addressing the underlying causes of conflict. This thesis asserts that the social dimension of peacebuilding is integral to the process of fostering sustainable peace; however to date it remains largely unaddressed. Focusing on the disproportionate effect of intrastate conflict on children, this thesis will explore the utility of education as a part of the social dimension of peacebuilding. Education is an important, albeit an overlooked aspect of the peacebuilding agenda. It has the potential to both alleviate and increase the propensity for conflict. By employing a "most different case comparison," this thesis attempts to establish a generalization concerning the utility of education in the process of fostering sustainable peace. Focusing primarily on the cases of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Sierra Leone will assist in building a series of comparisons which will demonstrate the versatile capacity of education to foster change in the post-conflict context.
