   schema:description "As the world{u2019}s largest island and the only country that is also a continent, Australia holds a unique place among nations. At the same time, given its history of colonialism, racial oppression, and reconciliation attempts, the island also stands as a microcosm of global interest in peacebuilding. Peace Psychology in Australia shows peace efforts making inroads as this large, diverse country undergoes rapid social change.¡ The book brings into focus the history of relations between Indigenous peoples¡and the descendents of British and other settlers, the experiences of recent immigrants, and the perspectives of peace professionals on how to achieve a more cooperative and less fragmented society. Chapters identify key factors in successful integration, analyzing the intricate balance between valuing diversity and promoting common bonds, values, and identity. The range of historical and contemporary issues featured includes the country{u2019}s hidden history of structural inequity, the rich tradition of Indigenous methods of resolving conflicts, and Australia{u2019}s unique possibilities for social justice. And peace psychologists are shown in context, whether advocating for asylum seekers or working with men{u2019}s groups to rethink the long-prevailing culture of male domination. Included in this important volume:¡¡ Immigration and Australian national identity. Encouraging respect for diversity in the schools. Community development in Indigenous empowerment. Stereotypes: hidden obstacles to reconciliation. Peace objectives in the era of climate change. Practical and research challenges for the future.¡ For peace psychologists, political scientists, and policymakers, Peace Psychology in Australia offers real-world lessons that can benefit people worldwide, and a foundation for peace work to come."@en ;
