Literature Review of Theories, Concepts, and Case Studies in Sustainable Human Development and Peacebuilding

Chapter
Part of the The Anthropocene: Politik—Economics—Society—Science book series (APESS, volume 16)

Abstract

This chapter discusses sustainable human development (SHD) and peacebuilding. These two conceptual paradigms are applied in the context of conflict-affected communities. The Right to Self-Determination is also explained as part of human rights and human need discussions about SHD. Given the dynamism in the theory and practice of development studies and conflict and peace studies, the two main theoretical frameworks, namely sustainable human development and peacebuilding, are distinguished from other theories and concepts. Theories and concepts of sustainable development, poverty reduction, and human security are explained in contrast to SHD. While peacebuilding is defined by laying the foundations of the definitions and meaning of peace in general, international peacebuilding and post-conflict development are also reviewed as related conceptual frameworks. Further, the differences and convergences of peacebuilding and conflict resolution are also discussed.
