Can we prevent violent conflicts and wars in the future? This volume reflects the growing interest in developing an early warning capability within the research community, in international humanitarian and aid agencies and in international institutions such as the United Nations.
By 'early warning' we mean information that can provide a timely alert to potential conflicts. Key issues covered in the book include: the manner in which the concept of early warning is translated into methodological approaches; identification of root causes for disputes and conflict situations; selection of indicators; determination of methodologies; use of new technologies; possible development of networking; search for conditions for the settlement of conflicts. The processing, analysis and evaluation of information is systematically approached in the collection.
The reader will find case-studies and practical approaches as well as theory-oriented papers. Authors have been encouraged to take a real-life approach rather than pursue a lofty and inaccessible theoretical discourse of little consequence.
