Little Book of Conflict Transformation : Clear Articulation Of The Guiding Principles By A Pioneer In The Field


A guide to conflict resolution, or as the author prefers, "conflict transformation" that emphasizes the importance of building relationships and social structures through a radical respect for human rights and life. This clearly articulated statement offers a hopeful and workable approach to conflict--that eternally beleaguering human situation. John Paul Lederach is internationally recognized for his breakthrough thinking and action related to conflict on all levels--person-to-person, factions within communities, warring nations. He explores why conflict transformation is more appropriate than conflict resolution or management. But he refuses to be drawn into impractical idealism. Topics include:
Defining Conflict TransformationConflict and ChangeConnecting Resolution and TransformationCreating a Map of ConflictDeveloping Our CapacitiesAnd much more!
Firmly rooted in faith and Mennonite teachings, and related to the popular concept of restorative justice, conflict transformation is an idea with a deep reach. Its practice, says Lederach, requires both solutions and social change. It asks not simply How do we end something not desired? but How do we end something destructive and build something desired? How do we deal with the immediate crisis, as well as the long-term situation? What disciplines make such thinking and practices possible? This title is part of The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding series.
