    The idea of peace as more than just the absence of war, but rather a
    “good” in itself, and a “cause for action”, is a product of the
    Enlightenment of the Eighteenth Century, and found ultimate
    expression in the ideals the United Nations. Difficult though it
    might be for some to believe, the period since 1945 is arguably the
    most peaceful in recorded history: the “long peace” between the
    major powers is now an unprecedented seventy two years. Can the long
    peace survive the global challenges emerging in the 21st century?
