This chapter discusses the essence of peacebuilding. This essence is composed of a small set of disciplines, or practices, out of which the complexity of peacebuilding emerges. When held together and practiced, these disciplines form the moral imagination that make peacebuilding possible. This essence is found in four disciplines: relationship, paradoxical curiosity, creativity, and risk.
