The International Studies Association (ISA) has awarded its “Best Book of the Year Award” to Saltzman Institute Member Séverine Autesserre’s Peaceland: Conflict Resolution and the Everyday Politics of International Intervention (New York: Cambridge University Press, 2014).

The book, which explores why international peace interventions often fail to reach their full potential, has been widely praised since its 2014 release. Dr. Autesserre’s groundbreaking ethnography of peacebuilding as well as her analysis of practices of intervention offer policy makers and practitioners tools and ideas with which to improve peacebuilding efforts.

The ISA will present Dr. Autesserre with the award at an official ceremony to be held next March.
