Abstract:

Since the end of the Cold War, conflict prevention and resolution, peacekeeping and peace building have risen to the top of the international agenda. This text's third edition explains the key concepts, charts the development of the field, evaluates successes and failures, and assesses the main current challenges and debates in the second decade of twenty-first century. Existing material has been thoroughly updated and new chapters added, on environmental conflict resolution, conflict resolution in arts and popular culture, conflict resolution in the media and the communications revolution, and theories and critiques of the field. The authors argue that a new form of cosmopolitan conflict resolution is emerging, which offers a hopeful means for societies to handle their conflicts non-violently and eventually to transcend and celebrate their differences. Part I offers a comprehensive survey of the theory and practice of conflict resolution. Part II sets the field within the context of rapid global change and addresses controversies that have surrounded conflict resolution.
