(p.31) I The Legacy of State Formation
Failed Statebuilding

Oliver P. Richmond

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the negative forms of hybrid peace which are caused by modern statebuilding. It also presents regional-studies literature to describe the dynamics of state formation. It reports on the importance of state-formation dynamics as a cause of various tensions in social, economic, and political areas. Analysis of state-formation in Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Kosovo is then presented. Debates on state-formation have negatively affected the possible statebuilding and peacebuilding approaches that intend to develop a positive, emancipatory peace.

Keywords:   peacebuilding, statebuilding, state formation, Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo
