Abstract

This paper examines the exclusion of economic and social rights from peacebuilding. The dominance of a liberal peacebuilding agenda is critiqued as a possible reason for this omission. It is argued that an alternative approach to peacebuilding is required which refocuses the peacebuilding agenda on human security: Aa hybrid 'human security plus' approach to peacebuilding (or a 'inclusive’ human rights approach) will ensure the protection and promotion of economic, social and cultural rights, throughout the whole peacebuilding process, from peace agreements to post-conflict reconstruction . The result will be a reclaiming of the peacebuilding agenda in order to improve the effectiveness of peacebuilding.
