To date there has been no systematic study of exit and exit strategies. This chapter discusses the importance of the subject and the significance of this volume for both scholarship and international policy. It conceptualizes “exit” with reference to the relevant academic and gray literature and historical experience, and it contextualizes the study of exit strategies in relation to the termination of international state-building operations and the requirements for the maintenance of a stable peace in the period following exit. It examines the various modes of transition and exit mechanisms that governments and international organizations involved in state-building may employ. It identifies the principal questions that inform this study and concludes with a discussion of the rationale that governs the selection of topics that appear in this volume.

Keywords:   state-building, exit modes and mechanisms, transition, peace consolidation, sustainability
