Description

Edited by three leading scholars of peace and conflict, Resolving Conflict brings together the work of international experts to provide an in-depth study of thirty-three peace/conflict organizations in Northern Ireland, South Africa, and Israel/Palestine. The contributors show how the sociopolitical and cultural context of the conflict in each region has shaped the type of resolution organisations that have emerged and their conception of the conflict and its resolution. By promoting more humane images of the contestants and by offering alternative peaceful approaches to resolve the conflict, the organisations have successfully galvanised previously weak or non-existent pro-peace political forces to become important players in the political struggle for peace.show more

Review quote

We highly recommend the Gidron, Katz and Hasenfeld book. This is a systematic, theory-based study of third sector organizations, which have very rarely been studied before. This study contributed significantly to the understanding of their structure and dynamics. * Administration in Social Work *show more
