9780415729734: Emotions in Conflict: Inhibitors and Facilitators of Peace Making (Routledge Studies in Political Psychology)

Social and political psychologists have attempted to reveal the reasons why individuals and societies that acknowledge that peace would improve their personal and collective well-being, and are aware of the required actions needed to promote it, are simply incapable of making this step forward. Some social psychologists have advocated the idea that certain societal beliefs and collective memories about the nature of the opponent, the in-group, the history, and the current state of the conflict distort the perceptions of society members and prevent them from identifying opportunities for peace. But these cognitive barriers capture only part of the picture.

Could identifying the role of discrete emotions in conflicts and conflict resolution potentially provide a wide platform for developing pinpoint conflict resolution interventions?

Using a vast array of primary sources, critical literature analysis, and firsthand personal experiences in various conflict zones (Middle East, Cyprus, Bosnia, and Northern Ireland), Eran Halperin introduces a new perspective on psychological barriers to peace. Halperin focuses on various emotional mechanisms that hamper peace processes, even when parties face real opportunities for conflict resolution. More specifically, he explores how hatred, anger, fear, angst, hope, despair, empathy, guilt, and shame, combined with various emotion regulation strategies, provide emotions-based explanations for people's attitudinal and behavioral reactions to peace-related events during the ongoing process of conflict resolution.

Written in a clear and accessible style, Emotions in Conflict offers a thought-provoking and pioneering insight into the role discrete intergroup emotions play in impeding, as well as facilitating, peace processes in intractable conflicts. This book is essential reading for those who study intractable conflicts and their resolutions, and those who are interested in the ‘real-world’ implication of recent theories and findings on emotion and emotion regulation.

About the Author:

Eran Halperin is currently an associate professor and the active dean of the School of Psychology at the Interdisciplinary Center, Herzliya, Israel. His research uses psychological and political theories and methods to investigate different aspects of intergroup conflicts. More specifically, he is interested in widening our understanding on the emotional roots of some of the most destructive political ramifications of intergroup relations.

Review:

'This book provides a detailed, nuanced, and novel perspective on the role of emotions in intergroup conflict and conflict resolution. Drawing on Halperin’s own extensive work in this area and integrating it with other relevant research, this book has the potential to quickly become a classic in the field.'Johanna Ray Vollhardt, Clark University, USA

'Although many books have been written about violent conflicts, relatively few focus on the important factor that is also responsible for their eruption, escalation and resolution―namely human emotions. This book is a pivotal contribution in closing this lacuna. He originally, eloquently, and comprehensively tackles the issue of emotions in conflict by providing a holistic analysis that not only elaborates on the role of specific emotions, but also and especially provides a holistic conceptual framework of emotions' functioning in the challenging context of intergroup violence.'Daniel Bar-Tal, Tel Aviv University, Israel
