9780739177143: Critical Issues in Peace and Conflict Studies: Theory, Practice, and Pedagogy

Peace and Conflict Studies (PCS) includes scholars and practitioners throughout the world working in peace studies, conflict analysis and resolution, conflict management, appropriate dispute resolution, and peace and justice studies. They come to the PCS field with a diversity of ideas, approaches, disciplinary roots, and topic areas, which speaks to the complexity, breadth, and depth needed to apply and take account of conflict dynamics and the goal of peace. Yet, a number of key concerns and dilemmas continue to challenge the field. Critical Issues in Peace and Conflict Studies: Theory, Practice, and Pedagogy, edited by Thomas Matyók, Jessica Senehi, and Sean Byrne, is a collection of essays that explores a number of these issues, providing a means by which academics, students, and practitioners can develop various methods to confront the complexity of contemporary conflicts.

Critical Issues in Peace and Conflict Studies discusses the emerging field of PCS, and suggests a framework for the future development of the field and the education of its practitioners and academics. The book has a wide audience targeting students at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels. It also extends to those working in and leading community conflict resolution efforts as well as humanitarian aid workers.

Review:

The ongoing great expansion and diffusion of peace and conflict studies and its applications raises numerous contested issues. This rare book, including many new and diverse contributors, illuminates several of these issues, which pertain to the evolving theory, practice, and pedagogy of peace and conflict studies. The result is an important and stimulating book that disserves a wide readership and much discussion. (Louis Kriesberg, Syracuse University)

Thanks to Matyok, Senehi, and Byrne, for giving us a book that challenges and enhances the Western scientific discourses that have begun to dominate the field. By making visible the kinds of violence suffered by those at the margins of society, in their refusal to over-simplify the challenges of violent conflict, by giving voice and visibility to those who work for peace in unexpected places and in unexpected ways, they make an important contribution to the field. This is knowledge that must inform our practice and our pedagogy if we are to meet the challenges of twenty-first century peacemaking. (Celia Cook-Huffman, Baker Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies, Juniata College)
