Peace Treaty and All You Need to Know

A peace treaty is a very general term for any kind of treaty which would lead to the establishment of some form of peace between two nations or governmental entities and which would, thus, most often end a period of violence and conflict. As a peace treaty establishes peace, it is separate and different from other forms of conflict-ending treaties and interactions, which might end violence, as with an armistice, but which would not actually bring about the same kind of lasting peace meant from a peace treaty.

A peace treaty will generally dictate many important terms regarding the conflict and the nations involved so as to best help them satisfactorily end the conflict and prevent any future conflicts from arising. To that end, a peace treaty might establish some means by which the involved nations could solve future conflicts non-violently

A peace treaty is also likely to establish certain important factors, including rules regarding the behavior of the involved nations, the payment of any debts which might have existed prior to the conflict and which might have arisen during the conflict, the nature of any territorial borders which the countries involved in the conflict might have, and more.

A peace treaty is different from a non-proliferation treaty, although a non-proliferation treaty can be considered to be something of a peace treaty in the modern world. A non-proliferation treaty is a treaty which is specifically designed to prevent nuclear weapons from spreading throughout the world, and as such, is designed to limit future nuclear conflict in a means similar to a peace treaty. However, a non-proliferation treaty is not a peace treaty because it is not designed to end all conflict inherently, and it was not implemented to end a conflict, so much as to prevent future conflict.
