Searching for Peace : The Road to Conflict Transcendence in the Twenty-first Century
Drawing on the Transcend approach to peace-making, this book provides a comprehensive guide to conflict resolution. Transcend is an international network of scholars and practitioners working for peace and development through action, training, dissemination and research. The Transcend method has been used by the UN and applied to conflicts throughout the world. It has been used in Northern Ireland; Kashmir; Korea; the Gulf conflict; Ecuador and Peru; Kosovo; Guatemala and Honduras; and China and Tibet. This book provides a wide ranging survey of past and present approaches to violent conflict prevention and includes detailed analysis of over 40 conflicts as case studies. It critiques the failures of recent peacekeeping and peacemaking efforts while presenting the multi-decade research and arguments that underlie the Transcend approach.
