Professor Oliver P. Richmond joined the University of Manchester in 2012 as a Research Professor in the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI)
and the Department of Politics. He is also International Professor at the School of International Studies, Kyung Hee University, Korea. His publications include A Post Liberal Peace (Routledge, 2011), Liberal Peace Transitions, (with Jason Franks, Edinburgh University Press, 2009), Peace in IR (Routledge, 2008, 2012), and The Transformation of Peace (Palgrave, 2005/7). He is the editor of the Palgrave book series, Rethinking Conflict Studies, and co-editor of the journal Peacebuilding. Forthcoming books include Failed Statebuilding versus Peace Formation, a Very Short Introduction to Peace, (Yale) and Peace Formation and Post -Conflict Political Order. Most recently he has been involved in discussions about civil society mobilisation around the current peace process in Colombia.
In this inaugural lecture Professor Richmond examines the implications of local processes of peace formation and emerging peace infrastructures for the state, and for the international peacebuilding architecture. This includes how the interaction of processes of state formation, liberal peacebuilding and statebuilding, and localised practices of peace formation, offer the prospect of forms of peace that may be both locally and internationally legitimate. He will discuss how post-liberal and hybrid forms that are based on contextual, state, and international sites of legitimate authority, and that are cognizant of different forms of power, offer a better understanding of peace processes worldwide.
