Abstract
Since 1815, Making Peace has concerned not only the settlement of a particular conflict but also patterns of international relations globally, what is often referred to as an “international system”. Today, also, making peace between Russia and Ukraine concerns the international system post bellum, which is why it will be so difficult, even if we ardently wish for the killing and the maiming to cease.
