This clearly articulated statement offers a hopeful and workable approach to conflict—that eternally beleaguering human situation. John Paul Lederach is internationally recognized for his breakthrough thinking and action related to conflict on all levels—person-to-person, factions within communities, warring nations. He explores why "conflict transformation" is more appropriate than "conflict resolution" or "management." But he refuses to be drawn into impractical idealism. Conflict Transformation is an idea with a deep reach. Its practice, says Lederach, requires "both solutions and social change." It asks not simply "How do we end something not desired?", but "How do we end something destructive and build something desired?" How do we deal with the immediate crisis, as well as the long-term situation? What disciplines make such thinking and practices possible? A title in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series.

Täglich werden wir mit Konflikten und ihren Folgen konfrontiert. Auf persönlicher wie auf politischer Ebene. Familie, Nachbarschaft, Arbeitsplatz, Kirche und Gemeinde – es gibt keine Umgebung, die gegen Konflikte immun wäre. Und Kriege und Auseinandersetzungen, die eigentlich weit weg scheinen, kommen uns durch Flüchtlinge ganz nahe. Was bedeutet es, Jesus praktisch nachzufolgen, der Menschen mit Gott und untereinander versöhnt, der uns als Botschafter seines Friedens in die Welt sendet? Wie können Christen in dieser turbulenten Welt ihrem Auftrag gerecht werden? John Paul Lederach hilft uns, Konflikte besser zu verstehen. Und er ermutigt mit spannenden Erlebnisberichten und einem umfangreichen Praxisteil zu konkreten Schritten auf dem Weg zur Versöhnung – dem Weg zur Freiheit.

Weaving Peace: Essays on Peace, Governance and Conflict Transformation in the Great Lakes Region of Africa provides a unique and interdisciplinary perspective on issues of peace, governance, and conflict transformation by academics and practitioners from eight partner institutions of the United Nations Mandated-University for Peace in the Great Lakes region of Africa. It is an essential tool for scholars and policymakers seeking contextual clarity behind the headlines about the nature and extent of conflicts in the region and how to go about transforming the region. It provides a rather nuanced perspective of the complexity of the peace/conflict dynamics of the region and underscores the inescapable truth of the need for a more indigenous and context-based approach to understanding the Great Lakes region of Africa.

A Hopeful, Practical Approach to Dialogue

When conflicts become ingrained in communities, people lose hope. Dialogue is necessary but never sufficient, and often actions prove inadequate to produce substantial change. Even worse, chosen actions create more conflict because people have different lived experiences, priorities, and approaches to transformation. So what’s the story? In The Little Book of Transformative Community Conferencing, David Anderson Hooker offers a hopeful, accessible approach to dialogue that: Integrates several practice approaches including restorative justice, peacebuilding, and arts Creates welcoming, non-divisive spaces for dialogue Names and maps complex conflicts, such as racial tensions, religious divisions, environmental issues, and community development as it narrates simple stories Builds relationships and foundations for trust needed to support long-term community transformation projects And results in the crafting of hopeful, future-oriented visions of community that can transform relationships, resource allocation, and structures in service of communities’ preferred narratives. The Little Book Transformative Community Conferencing will prove valuable and timely to mediators, restorative justice practitioners, community organizers, as well as leaders of peacebuilding and change efforts. It presents an important, stand-alone process, an excellent addition to the study and practice of strategic peacebuilding, restorative justice, conflict transformation, trauma healing, and community organizing. This book recognizes the complexity of conflict, choosing long-term solutions over inadequate quick fixes. The Transformative Community Conferencing model emerges from the author’s thirty years of practice in contexts as diverse as South Sudan; Mississippi; Greensboro, North Carolina; Oakland, California; and Nassau, Bahamas.

The Case of India-Pakistan

Author: Saira Khan

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134188137

Category: History

Page: 216

This new volume explores what the acquisition of nuclear weapons means for the life of a protracted conflict. The book argues that the significance of the possession of nuclear weapons in conflict resolution has been previously overlooked. Saira Khan argues that the acquisition of nuclear weapons by states keeps conflicts alive indefinitely, as they are maintained by frequent crises and low-to-medium intensity violence, rather than escalating to full-scale wars. This theory therefore emphasises the importance of nuclear weapons in both war-avoidance and peace-avoidance. The book opens with a section explaining its theory of conflict transformation with nuclear weapons, before testing this against the case study of the India--Pakistan protracted conflict in South Asia. This book will be of much interest to students of strategic studies, IR and Asian politics and security.

How Mennonites Have Been Portrayed in Media and How They Have Shaped Media for Identity and Outreach

Anabaptists and Mennonites have often been the subject of media scrutiny: sometimes admired, at other times maligned. Luther called them schwarmar, a German word meaning "fanatics" that alludes to a swarm of bees. In contrast, American independent film producer John Sayles drew inspiration from Mennonite conscientious objectors for his 1987 award-winning film, Matewan. Voltaire's Candide features a virtuous Anabaptist. Oscar Wilde's play The Importance of Being Earnest contains an Anabaptist reference. An Anabaptist chaplain is central to Joseph Heller's antiwar classic, Catch-22. President Lincoln and General Stonewall Jackson both had something to say about Mennonites. Garrison Keillor tells Mennonite jokes. These are just a few of the dozens of fascinating media references, dating from the early 1500s through the present, which are chronicled and analyzed here. Mennonites, although often considered media-shy, have in fact used media to great advantage in shaping their faith and identity. Beginning with the Martyrs Mirror, this book examines the writings of Mennonite authors John Howard Yoder, Donald Kraybill, Rudy Wiebe, Rhoda Janzen, and Malcolm Gladwell. Citing books, film, art, theater, and Ngram, the online culturomic tool developed by Harvard University and Google, the author demonstrates that Mennonites "punch above their weight class" in the media, and especially in print.

The Art and Soul of Building Peace

Author: John Paul Lederach

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 9780198038948

Category: Social Science

Page: 216

View: 2319

John Paul Lederach's work in the field of conciliation and mediation is internationally recognized. As founding Director of the Conflict Transformation Program and Institute of Peacebuilding at Eastern Mennonite University, he has provided consultation and direct mediation in a range of situations from the Miskito/Sandinista conflict in Nicaragua to Somalia, Northern Ireland, the Basque Country, and the Philippines. His influential 1997 book Building Peace has become a classic in the discipline. This new book represents his thinking and learning over the past several years. He explores the evolution of his understanding of peacebuilding by reflecting on his own experiences in the field. Peacebuilding, in his view, is both a learned skill and an art. Finding this art, he says, requires a worldview shift. Conflict professionals must envision their work as a creative act - an exercise of what Lederach terms the "moral imagination."

Übersetzt von Michael Dillo Viele von uns sehnen sich nach einer reicheren und sinnvolleren Verbindung zum Göttlichen. Gleichzeitig finden wir es schwierig, die Gebote unseres Glaubens einzuhalten, z.B. "die andere Wange" hinzuhalten, Urteile zu vermeiden oder unsere Feinde zu lieben. Marshall B. Rosenberg zufolge ist es unser grundlegendstes spirituelles Bedürfnis, zum Wohlergehen von anderen Menschen - aber auch zu unserem eigenen - beizutragen. Seine kurzen, spontanen Reflektionen zur spirituellen Basis der Gewaltfreien Kommunikation werden Sie nicht nur dazu inspirieren, sich mit dem Göttlichen in Ihnen selbst und in anderen zu verbinden. Sie werden darüber hinaus beginnen, eine Welt der Empathie und des Mitgefühls zu schaffen, in der die Sprache, die wir benutzen, der Schlüssel zu einem bereichernden Leben ist.
