Description

Positive Approaches to Peacebuilding is a path-breaking contribution to peacemaking for a global society. In a highly readable fashion, it combines theory and case studies, domestic and international experiences, and advocacy of innovative approaches along with appropriate caution against simplistic application of these practices. The theoretical frameworks are rich enough to satisfy scholars, the case studies are practical enough to engage practitioners and the tips and guides to practice are sure to inspire new and innovative work among peacebuilders. This book presents an innovative perspective on peacebuilding that breaks new ground while maintaining strong roots and relationships in tradition. The impact of this book on the reader and those with whom the reader works, will last a lifetime.
