This book focuses on the internationalisation and legalisation of peace agreements to settle intrastate conflicts between state and non-state parties. It focuses on two key issues: how international courts and tribunals deal with peace agreements; and what implications the United Nations Security Council's involvement in the negotiation and implementation of peace agreements has for the agreements' legal nature, the status of the non-state parties to agreements and the interpretation of peace agreements. The author argues that the processes of negotiating and implementing peace agreements between state and non-state parties create new sphere, spaces and forms of post-conflict law making and law enforcement. For example, contemporary peace agreements can simultaneously take the form and function of internationalised transitional constitutions and agreements governed by international law.
