The liberal democratic peace is best described as a confluence of behaviour, attitudes and structural factors that encourage a particular type of peace and peacemaking. It can be identified through its possession of five core elements:
  1. means or methodology;

  2. core components (distinctive forms of liberalism and democracy);

  3. nature of its principal actors and sponsors;

  4. ideological perspective;

  5. type of peace effected.
