The emerging peace geographies subfield has made significant contributions to peace research by showing how peace is a contested spatial process and political discourse. This article integrates peace geographies with the until now ignored trans-rational ‘many peaces’ framework’s exploration of an even wider range of peace imaginaries. Yet some forms exacerbate rather than provide alternatives to intersectional violences pervasive in today’s world. I argue for a normative framework to evaluate the ‘plurality of the peaces’ illuminated by these subfields, proposing ‘radical trans-relational peace’ – ecological dignity and solidarity through trans-community networks – as a geographically and politically situated conception to analyze the ‘many peaces’.
