Summary This chapter offers an empirical and conceptual discussion on the relationship between the growing global consciousnesses of the world as a whole-the global imaginary-and the emergence of visual-discursive narratives of "positive peacebuilding" in defined socio-historical urban contexts across the globe. In identifying a new class of images categorized as "visual ideological markers of peacebuilding", the author focuses on the ways in which these new figures of knowledge, through their symbolic power, contribute to more inclusive, peaceful and just societies, under present conditions of globalization. "Approaching Peace Visually" concludes with two case studies carried out through the lenses of sociopolitical theory.
