This major new Handbook provides a cutting-edge and transdisciplinary overview of the main issues, debates, state-of-the-art methods, and key concepts in peace and conflict studies today.

The fields of peace and conflict studies have grown exponentially since being initiated by Professor Johan Galtung half a century ago. They have forged a transdisciplinary and professional identity distinct from security studies, political science, and international relations.

The volume is divided into four sections:

  • understanding and transforming conflict
  • creating peace
  • supporting peace
  • peace across the disciplines.

Each section features new essays by distinguished international scholars and professionals working in peace studies and conflict resolution and transformation. Drawing from a wide range of theoretical, methodological, and political positions, the editors and contributors offer topical and enduring approaches to peace and conflict studies.

The Handbook of Peace and Conflict Studies will be essential reading for students of peace studies, conflict studies and conflict resolution. It will also be of interest and use to practitioners in conflict resolution and NGOs, as well as policy makers and diplomats.

About the Author:

Charles Webel is currently Fulbright Senior Specialist in Peace and Conflict Studies and is a professor at the University of New York in Prague, where he directs the program in Peace and Conflict Studies. During 2005, he was Director of The Centre of Peace Studies and a professor of social science at the University of Tromsø, Norway. He is the author of Terror, Terrorism, and the Human Condition (2007) and co-author with David P. Barash of Peace and Conflict Studies (2008).

Johan Galtung is widely acknowledged as the founder of peace studies and peace research. He has published extensively in these fields. He is currently co-director of TRANSCEND, a global network of peace scholars and conflict transformers.

Review:

 
‘It is a great privilege for me to recommend the Routledge Handbook of Peace and Conflict Studies. Peace and Conflict Studies were initiated by Johan Galtung more than fifty years ago. Since then these studies have expanded enormously and developed their own unique identity. This Handbook contains many outstanding contributions by peace researchers, scholars and others, including important introductory and concluding articles by the editors themselves. It is a “must-read” for all students, teachers and researchers of peace and conflict studies, and of conflict resolution. In general, the Routledge Handbook of Peace and Conflict Studies will be useful for all who are working in the field of conflict resolution in the world.’

Dr Ole D. Mjøs, Chairman of the Centre for Peace Studies, University of Tromsø , Norway and Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee

 

'This text would serve as a good reference volume for those scholars whose interests range from mediation to women's rights to psychology.' Choice
