Professor Milena Sterio’s latest book, Research Handbook on Post-Conflict State Building, was published by Edward Elgar (co-edited with Professor Paul Williams, American University Washington College of Law).
The publisher summarizes the book as follows:
“As a conflict ends and the parties begin working towards a durable peace, practitioners and peacebuilders are faced with the thrilling possibilities and challenges of building new or reformed political, security, judicial, social, and economic structures. This Handbook analyzes these elements of post-conflict state building through the lens of international law, which provides a framework through which the authors contextualize and examine the many facets of state building in relation to the legal norms, processes, and procedures that guide such efforts across the globe. The volume aims to provide not only an introduction to and explanation of prominent topics in state building, but also a perceptive analysis that augments ongoing conversations among researchers, lawyers, and advocates engaged in the field.”
Professor Sterio is the Charles R. Emrick Jr. – Calfee Halter & Griswold Professor of Law.
