The peace movement has a long history in dealing with interstate wars. However, traditional conflicts have been replaced by complex wars within states involving a range of stakeholders. This new warfare trend is increasingly victimizing civilians in conflict areas. Do drone strikes, air bombings or boots on the ground really bring alleviation to civilians? This debate will explore the new role of the peace movement . How does it respond to the use of military force used in interventions? Are peace movement initiatives affecting military interventions? And what does the peace movement see as viable solutions to establish long-lasting peace?
