9788132109433: Peace is Everybody's Business: A Strategy for Conflict Prevention

Arjun Ray’s book is based on the dialogue around the counterinsurgency doctrine, arguing that the main strategy towards this aim should be preventing people from feeling alienated. The central focus of this strategy, which the author in his capacity as an army man successfully executed in Operation Sadhbhavna, is the people. The author proposes a three-pronged strategy to achieve success?preventing conflict by addressing human security through human development, pursuing a policy of atonement and forgiveness, and eliminating trust deficit between the State and the marginalized?the three pillars of Operation Sadhbhavna.

About the Author:

A soldier-scholar of the Indian army, Lt. General Arjun Ray has wide-ranging experience in war, conflict management and social transformation.

Lt General Ray served as India’s Deputy Military Advisor in London. In his last assignment, he commanded the newly raised 14 Corps in Ladakh. As part of Operation Sadbhavana (Goodwill), he set up 13 Sadbhavana schools, 11 women’s empowerment centres and 60 adult education centres for non-literate women along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

In recognition of his services in nation-building, he was awarded the Param Vishisht Seva Medal, the highest award in the armed forces for distinguished service. His success story in change leadership has been selected as a case study for business and management schools in India.

In his second calling?international school education?he has set up three International Baccalaureate Schools, the Leadership School, and the world’s first Equal Opportunity School for children living below the poverty line. IB World has recently acclaimed the general as one of the six IB World School Leaders on rethinking education, especially by making high-quality education affordable to the poor.

The author’s first book, Kashmir Diary: The Psychology of Militancy (1997), is a purple primer in understanding the mind and motivation behind political violence.

Review:

An important contribution to the discourse on security sector reform. It will also be helpful to those engaged in peace building evaluation, particularly with respect to the implementation and monitoring of conflict prevention programs

(The Book Review)

A very Interesting and knowledgeable commentary on the state of Muslim across the world...[The book] has interesting in-depth analysis of the issues that are extremely crucial for India.

(Bureaucracy India)

Book Description Sage Publications, 2012. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Peace is Everybody`s Business is about conflict prevention, hope and peace for the oppressed and alienated, and the imaginative use of soft-power to win back estranged communities into the social and political mainstream. Past strategies in managing alienated societies have been derived from two extreme ideological positions-imprisoning those who take up arms against the stage, or ultra-liberalism, which is denounced as impractical. The author suggests an alternative strategy to reconcile these two extreme positions-a three-pronged strategy to achieve success by preventing conflict by addressing human security through human development, pursuing a policy of atonement and forgiveness, and eliminating trust deficit between the State and the marginalized. The central focus of this strategy, which the author in his capacity as a General successfully executed in Operation Sadhbhavna, is the people. The author believes that killing is counterproductive and the army must change its role from `winning wars` to `preventing wars`. Printed Pages: 264. Bookseller Inventory # 89247
