Review quote

In a timely manner, the book adopts a unique approach to the Kurdish conflict based on 'scenario-building,' which prompts us to think about future scenarios of the Kurdish issue in Turkey...One of the book's most important contributions is that it provides brief and refined analyses of four cases of international conflict resolution processes...At this point, the book is valuable in that it provides considerations on conflict transformation that deal with the root causes of the conflict and of human security that will open the door for freedom from want and fear, and freedom to live in dignity, all crucial for the establishment of positive peace in Turkey. Therefore, the book is highly recommended as useful not only for conflict resolution scholars but also for readers who are interested in exploring possible pathways to peace in Turkey. Insight Turkey Benefiting from a wide range of international experiences of conflict resolution and using both the history and the contemporary dynamics of the country as a guide, [this book] convincingly imagines a sustainable future for the country and makes a very compelling argument with a simple and easily understandable language for Turkish policy makers to look into the country's current problems from different angles. -- Mustafa Aydin, Kadir Has University, Turkeyshow more
