    This article analyzes the peace approaches of international relations theories and argues that lasting peace is possible through a functioning global governance system. Idealist and Liberalist traditions maintain that lasting peace can be achieved if certain norms and rules are established and consolidated at state and international levels. Realist theorists associate peace concept with power and interest and claim that an international peaceful order might be a reality only in limited periods and based on power and interests of some states. The Marxist approaches stipulate that the present capitalist world economy must be restructured for sustainable peace while Poststructuralist perspective and Critical Theory do not offer an applicable roadmap for lasting peace despite their critical stance on Positivist understanding of peace concept. This study asserts that for sustainable peace at world level a working and influential global governance system should be built and maintained in effect.
