Liberals have developed a distinctive ‘peace theory’. Liberal peace theory returns to a familiar liberal theme that the people have no interest in war, in the sense that war is not in their interests. It follows from this that wars are frequently the result of aggression on the part of belligerent leaders or states pursuing a particular interest. Many liberal peace theorists are of the view that it is only when an end is put to tyranny around the globe and when universal liberal democracy and respect for human rights exist that international peace will prevail.
