This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I believe this differs on different Stack Exchange sites but on Stack Overflow these peers that can approve your edit are anyone with over 2000 Rep. – Mick MacCallum May 7 '12 at 10:27

Stack Overflow is not a forum. – Cody Gray May 7 '12 at 11:12
@TheEstablishment, I have updated the question – UNNI May 7 '12 at 11:15

who is the peer here

Other users of the site with enough reputation to have edit approval privileges are your peers.

how this working

When one such user has enough reputation they have access to a review queue where they can see edit suggestions (such as yours) and go through them - approving or rejecting them.

They can also see that a question/answer has a suggested edit when on the page and act on them.

Just any body can become a peer and do the needful

Yes. All you need is enough reputation.

For more details see How do suggested edits work?.

Actually, I can approve edits even if I don't have it in review queue (comes with 5000 rep). But I would be limited only to the edits that I will see, if I step into the question. – om-nom-nom May 7 '12 at 10:28
