A strategic vision for Africa : the Kampala movement by Francis Mading Deng( )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book chronicles the efforts, made manifest in the Kampala Principles, of a determined group working to solve Africa's complex problems. In 1989 Olusegun Obasanjo, then Nigerian head of state and now the democratically elected president, organized the first of many forums that resulted in the Kampala Principles, a document providing a framework for workable political and economic development in Africa. Taking the Helsinki Document of 1975 as their model, participants in the several forums settled on seven key tenets geared toward the adoption of a new and comprehensive politico-economic regime on the continent. They also created a longer declaration of norms and principles."--Jacket
Understanding life in the borderlands : boundaries in depth and in motion by I. William Zartman( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past two decades have seen an intense, interdisciplinary interest in the border areas between states--inhabited territories located on the margins of a power center or between power centers. This timely and highly original collection of essays edited by noted scholar I. William Zartman is an attempt "to begin to understand both these areas and the interactions that occur within and across them"--That is, to understand "how" borders affect the groups living along them and the nature of the land and people abutting on and divided by boundaries. These essays highlight three defining features of border areas: borderlanders constitute an experiential and culturally identifiable unit; borderlands are characterized by constant movement (in time, space, and activity); and in their mobility, borderlands always prepare for the next move at the same time that they respond to the last one. The ten case studies presented range over four millennia and provide windows for observing the dynamics of life in borderlands. They also have policy relevance, especially in creating an awareness of borderlands as dynamic social spheres and of the need to anticipate the changes that given policies will engender--changes that will in turn require their own solutions. Contrary to what one would expect in this age of globalization, says Zartman, borderlands maintain their own dynamics and identities and indeed spread beyond the fringes of the border and reach deep into the hinterland itself. -- Description from (Jan. 27, 2012)
Governance as conflict management : politics and violence in West Africa by I. William Zartman( )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors examine the efforts of Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, and Nigeria to manage their conflicts and evaluate the prospects of the three nations for effective regimes for managing conflicts in the future. By suggesting explanations for their past successes and failures, this study of West Africa contributes to an understanding of governance and conflict management. The lessons are far-reaching and applicable well beyond the African continent
Peacemaking in international conflict : methods & techniques by I. William Zartman( Book )

32 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 1,218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zbrani prispevki predstavljajo sodobne tehnike in metode sprave ter mirnega reševanja mednarodnih sporov: nekatere, kot so pogajanja, posredovanja tretje strani in dogovori, so dokaj uveljavljene in znane, medtem ko so druge mednarodni skupnosti manj znane: transformacija spora, reševanje problemov na delovnih seminarjih, usposabljanje v tehnikah reševanja sporov, družbeno psihološke metode itd. Razne konfliktne situacije, od pogajanj o razorožitvi in nadzorovanju orožja do meddržavnih sporov v novih državah v obdobju po hladni vojni, so prikazane tako z analitičnega kot praktičnega vidika

Arab spring : negotiating in the shadow of the intifadat by I. William Zartman( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in January 2011, the Arab world exploded in a vibrant demand for dignity, liberty, and achievable purpose in life, rising up against an image and tradition of arrogant, corrupt, unresponsive authoritarian rule. These previously unpublished, countryspecific case studies of the uprisings and their still unfolding political aftermaths identify patterns and courses of negotiation and explain why and how they occur. The contributors argue that in uprisings like the Arab Spring negotiation is "not just a 'nice' practice or a diplomatic exercise." Rather, it is a "dynamically multilevel" process involving individuals, groups, and states with continually shifting priorities-and with the prospect of violence always near. From that perspective, the essaysits analyze a range of issues and events-including civil disobedience and strikes, mass demonstrations and nonviolent protest, and peaceful negotiation and armed rebellion-and contextualize their findings within previous struggles, both within and outside the Middle East. The Arab countries discussed include Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia, and Yemen. The Arab Spring uprisings are discussed in the context of rebellions in countries like South Africa and Serbia, while the Libyan uprising is also viewed in terms of the negotiations it provoked within NATO. Collectively, the essays analyze the challenges of uprisers and emerging governments in building a new state on the ruins of a liberated state; the negotiations that lead either to sustainable democracy or sectarian violence; and coalition building between former political and military adversaries.

The practical negotiator by I. William Zartman( Book )

14 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Practical Negotiator draws upon both theory and practice to present a model of the negotiation process. This text focuses primarily upon international negotiations. The Practical Negotiator will be of interest to those who seek a better understanding of the basic process and strategies of negotiation. This work is divided into six chapters with a foreword by Alvin Eurich. Eurich reviews the historical development of negotiation as a field of academic study. Chapter One serves as an introduction to the text. The authors' research has drawn upon three sources of data: the historical record, theories and experiments on bargaining behavior, and interviews with diplomats and UN ambassadors. Historical, experimental and personal cases are used throughout the text to illustrate their theoretical model. The authors also introduce the three key stages in their model of negotiation. In the first stage participants diagnose their situation. Secondly, they attempt to negotiate a formula or common understanding of their conflict, in terms which permit its resolution. The third stage settles the details of the conflict by applying the formula. In practice these stages may overlap. Chapter Two focuses on the skills and personality traits needed by the practical negotiator. Helpful personal characteristics include empathy, patience, self-assurance, ingenuity, and stamina. The authors consider briefly how these traits operate in personal interactions. They then discuss the importance of enabling trust in the negotiation process, and describe the skills needed to build trust. Of central importance is the credibility of the negotiators or participants

Sovereignty as responsibility : conflict management in Africa by Francis Mading Deng( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors present a framework that should guide both national governments and the international community in discharging their respective responsibilities. They develop broad principles by examining identity as a potential source of conflict, governance as a matter of managing conflict, and economics as a policy field for conflict prevention. Considering conflict management, political stability, economic development, and social welfare as functions of governance, they also develop strategies, guidelines, and roles for its responsible exercise. Approaching conflict management from the perspective of the responsibilities of sovereignty provides a framework for evaluating government accountability. It proposes standards that guide performance and sharpen tools of conflict prevention rather than simply making post hoc judgments on success or failure. The authors demonstrate that sovereignty as responsibility is both a national obligation and a global imperative
International cooperation : the extents and limits of multilateralism by I. William Zartman( )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of new approaches to the subject of international cooperation were developed in the 1980s. As a result, further questions have arisen, particularly with regard to the methods and limits of cooperation and the relationship between cooperation and the debate over multilateralism. International Cooperation considers these questions, identifies further areas for research, and pushes the analysis of this fundamental concept in international relations in new directions. Its two parts address the historic roots and modern development of the notion of cooperation, and the strategies used to achieve it, with a conclusion that reaches beyond international relations into new disciplinary avenues. This edited collection incorporates historical research, social and economic analysis and political and evolutionary game theory.--From publisher description
Elusive peace : negotiating an end to civil wars by I. William Zartman( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elusive Peace brings together a host of international experts on area studies and conflict resolution to examine various current and ongoing cases of internal conflict worldwide. Recognizing that internal dissidence is the legitimate result of the breakdown of normal politics, the authors explore how conflicts can be resolved through negotiation rather than combat. They provide a revealing look at the nature of internal conflicts, explain why appropriate conditions for negotiation and useful solutions are so difficult to find, and offer ways of finding solutions. The authors offer a series of case studies of ongoing conflict in Angola, Mozambique, Eritrea, Ethiopia, South Africa, Southern Sudan, Lebanon, Spain, Colombia, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines. They examine the characteristics of each confrontation, including past failed negotiations, and in each case make suggestions for changes in negotiating strategies that could lead to a more successful outcome

Negotiating with terrorists : strategy, tactics, and politics by Guy Olivier Faure( )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edited volume addresses the important issue of negotiating with terrorists, and offers recommendations for best practice and processes. Hostage negotiation is the process of trying to align two often completely polarized parties. Authorities view hostage taking as unacceptable demands made by unacceptable means. However terrorists view their actions as completely justified, even on moral and religious grounds. If they are to try and reconcile these two sides, it is essential for hostage negotiators to understand terrorist culture, the hostage takers' profiles, their personality, their view of the world and also the authorities, their values and their framing of the problem raised by the taking of hostages. Although not advocating negotiating with terrorists, the volume seeks to analyze when, why, and how it is done."--Jacket
The slippery slope to genocide : reducing identity conflicts and preventing mass murder( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genocide results from the culmination of conflicts over identity. A group of people that feels threatened by extinction resorts to genocide as a pathologically defensive reaction. This poses a security dilemma that can only be broken by quelling the feelings of threat and fear that prompt mass violence. In order to prevent genocide, it is essential to understand the internal dynamics of identity conflict. It is also important to intervene at the early stages of identity conflict; the parties involved require external help to ease tensions. In this volume, noted thinkers and practitioners of conflict management, who hail from ten different countries, present ideas on how to prevent identity issues from causing fear and escalating into genocide. They focus on measures for handling the internal dynamics of parties facing identity conflicts, as well as considerations for arranging external assistance. Contributors address the problem of outbidders, actors whose non-conciliatory attitudes put them in positions of leadership in their identity groups. Since political extremism and violence can signal resolve and commitment to a group cause, moderates give way to hardliners. Spoilers, who believe that peace undermines their interests and power, also play a key role in the dynamics of conflicts. Careful attention is necessary to select appropriate third parties who can pull conflicting parties off the course of conflict. The authors discuss the concepts and practices involved in changing structures and attitudes to ease tensions, as well as the measures interveners must take to work in the midst of conflicting groups
