Peace is never clearly distinct from war. War is inside peace, and peace is inside war. Peace is not a separate end point to achieve in time or space, but a precarious sociospatial process that is remade every day. Peace means different things at different scales, as well as to different groups and at different times and places. It is shaped by the spaces in which it is made, as it too shapes those spaces. Peace is not the same everywhere any more than war is. When peace is portrayed as a mythical singular, it can more easily be used to justify violence and oppression.
