Civil Wars, Civil Peace: An Introduction to Conflict Resolution (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


In recent years the terms 'genocide' and 'ethnic cleansing' have not only re-entered the common vocabulary, but seem now to be tolerated and accepted as the inevitable consequences of the wars and conflicts that, as much as ever before, plague the world's landscape. But as yet there is no globally accepted structure through which conflict can be tackled. How should we as individuals, as nations and as an international community respond to conflict?

Civil Wars, Civil Peace offers a radical new approach to conflict prevention, resolution and diplomacy. Designed for undergraduate students as well as for practitioners and peace negotiators, the book provides an overview of conflict in the post-Cold War world, covering key topics such as identifying and assessing early warnings of conflict, and the need to take early action; information gathering and analysis; and the need for preventive diplomacy. In particular, the role of non-governmental organisations and other third-party mediators in conflict resolution is considered.

Kumar Rupesinghe is Secretary General of the London-based International Alert, the leading non-governmental organisation working in the area of conflict resolution. IA's primary purpose is to seek and propose constitutional provisions in areas of international conflict, to alert international opinion in areas of potential conflict, mass killings and genocide, to promote human rights, to provide dialogue with a view to ending ethnic conflict and to provide mediation where necessary. Sanam Naraghi-Anderlini is an author and a consultant to the United Nations on the subject of women and conflict. In 2013 she was the gender adviser to the UN Department of Political Affairs' Standby Team of Mediation Experts.
