On the Law of Peace

Christine Bell

Oxford University Press

This chapter sets out the book's aims and objectives as to provide a legal account of peace agreements as potentially legal documents with a role for legal enforcement, and peace agreements as subject to the regulation of international law. It forms an overture to the book, pointing to the book's central argument that the legal status (or not) of peace agreements and their relationship to international law are closely linked in ways that cannot easily be separated, and have operated so as to produce an emerging ‘law of the peacemakers’ or lex pacificatoria.

Keywords:   international law, constitutional law, peace agreements, law of the peacemakers, lex pacificatoria
