Peacemaking in international conflict : methods & techniques( Book )

32 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 1,212 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

The practical negotiator by I. William Zartman( Book )

14 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and held by 738 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
Elusive peace : negotiating an end to civil wars by I. William Zartman( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 699 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

Conflict resolution in Africa by Francis Mading Deng( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sovereignty, according to the authors, can no longer be seen as a protection against interference, but as a charge of responsibility where the state is accountable to both domestic and external constituencies. In internal conflicts in Africa, sovereign states have often failed to take responsibility for their own citizens' welfare and for the humanitarian consequences of conflict, leaving the victims with no protection or assistance. This book shows how that responsibility can be exercised by states over their own populations and by other states in assistance to their fellow sovereigns
The 50% solution : how to bargain successfully with hijackers, strikers, bosses, oil magnates, Arabs, Russians, and other worthy opponents in this modern world by I. William Zartman( Book )

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

16 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 492 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
Governance as conflict management : politics and violence in West Africa by I. William Zartman( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 473 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
International cooperation : the extents and limits of multilateralism by I. William Zartman( Book )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 292 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
Understanding life in the borderlands : boundaries in depth and in motion by I. William Zartman( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 227 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)
Negotiating with terrorists : strategy, tactics, and politics by Guy Olivier Faure( Book )

21 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 221 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
Diplomacy games : formal models and international negotiations by Rudolf Avenhaus( Book )

20 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, leading experts in international negotiations present formal models of conflict resolution and international negotiations. Besides the description of different models and approaches, the book answers three questions: How can the abstract concepts and results of rational choice theorists be made more understandable and plausible to political and social scientists not trained to work with formal models? What can be done to encourage practitioners to use not only simple but also mathematically advanced approaches in their analysis of real world negotiation problems? How can practitioners (e.g., politicians and diplomats) become interested in, take into account, and apply formal models of their more important problems?
