Since the watershed dates of 11/9 and 9/11, it has become dramatically clear that intra-state conflicts – and their correlation with weak and failing states – represent not only a major humanitarian concern but also a significant threat to regional and global security. Consequently, one of the central challenges facing the international community today involves the prevention and resolution of violent conflict.

On 27-28 October 2004, the German Foreign Office and the Bertelsmann Stiftung convened the high-level conference, "Beyond Cold Peace: Strategies for Economic Reconstruction and Post-conflict Management", which brought together over 100 national and international policymakers, scholars, journalists, and practitioners active in the field of conflict management. In lively and sometimes controversial discussions, these experts evaluated the experiences made to date in the field of post-conflict reconstruction and underscored the strategic necessity of a more active and coherent European foreign and security policy.

The results of this dynamic conference are now available as a volume of the German Foreign Office’s publication series, Edition Diplomatie. Key contributors include such renowned policymakers and experts as Joschka Fischer, Lakhdar Brahimi, José Ramos-Horta, and Paddy Ashdown. Through its comprehensive approach, the report provides a useful reader that addresses all the main pillars of post-conflict reconstruction, including security, socioeconomic development, effective governance, and justice and reconciliation.

This publication was produced within the framework of the project "Europe’s Global Responsibility".
