Abstract:This paper presents the result of hundreds of conversations with ordinary Burundians - foremost but not exclusively youth - about what 'peace' means to them. The aim was more generally to learn how, after 13 years of war, (young, male) ordinary Burundians see the future. The interviews were conducted in six different places (rural and urban), representing different situation of life during the war in Burundi. The paper develops a typology of answers people presented - negative peace, positive peace, social peace, peace related to mobility, peace as good governance, peace of mind - and links these popular insights to the human security agenda.
