The human face of conflict resolution.

Author: Giandomenico Picco; Gabrielle Rifkind
Publisher: London : I.B. Tauris, 2014.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English
Summary:
Institutions do not decide whom to destroy or to kill, whether to make peace or war; those decisions are the responsibility of individuals. This book argues that the most important aspect of conflict resolution is for antagonists to understand their opponents as individuals, their ambitions, their pains, the resentments that condition their thinking and the traumas they do not fully themselves grasp.
