Building peace : sustainable reconciliation in divided societies by John Paul Lederach( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Building Peace is John Paul Lederach's definitive statement on peacebuilding. Lederach explains why we need to move beyond "traditional" diplomacy, which often emphasizes top-level leaders and short-term objectives, toward a holistic approach that stresses the multiplicity of peacemakers, long-term perspectives, and the need to create an infrastructure that empowers resources within a society and maximizes contributions from outside."--Jacket

Coercive inducement and the containment of international crises by Donald C Daniel( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Udtrykket "Coercive Inducement" blev "opfundet" af Kofi Annan, da han var vicegeneralsekretær i FN's fredsbevarende arbejde. Udtrykket dækker den form for tvingende, uomgængeligt diplomati, som hviler på udvikling og demonstration af militær magt snarere end egentlig militær magtudøvelse. Bogen præsenterer først de generelle principper herfor, dernæst fire i nyere tid gennemførte FN-operationer - i Somalia, Rwanda, Bosnien og Haiti - hvor anvendelsen af Coercive Inducement var delvist relevant og endelig de operative retningslinier for princippernes anvendelse...Fredsstøttende operationer; Bosnien; Somalia; Rwanda; Haiti
Islamic activism and U.S. foreign policy by Scott W Hibbard( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many in the West, political violence in Algeria, the Middle East, and elsewhere has come to symbolize the threat of "Islamic activism." Western governments, however, must deal with the challenge of extremism in the broader context of their relations with diverse states with contrasting histories, geographies, and peoples. To assess this challenge, the Institute brought together a distinguished group of policy analysts, practitioners, and scholars for a series of frank discussions. The sessions analyzed the nature of Islamic activism - including moderate political parties and militant extremists - and the options for policymakers to mitigate violence in a range of cases
Exiting Indochina : U.S. leadership of the Cambodia settlement & normalization of relations with Vietnam by Richard H Solomon( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book recounts the diplomacy that brought an end to great power involvement in Indochina, including the negotiations for a UN peace process in Cambodia and construction of a "road map" for normalizing U.S.-Vietnam relations. In so doing, this volume also highlights the changing character of diplomacy at the beginning of the 1990s, when, at least temporarily, an era of military confrontation among the major world powers gave way to political management of international conflicts."--Jacket
Europe undivided : the new logic of peace in U.S.-Russian relations by James E Goodby( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can Russia and the United States really move beyond their bitter Cold War rivalry to a genuinely cooperative relationship? Yes, argues distinguished diplomat James Goodby, but only if the United States, together with its European allies, promotes a new "logic of peace" to which NATO enlargement could contribute. During the nuclear standoff, a network of norms, rules, and structures kept the peace between the superpowers in Europe. Today, a new logic must be established, one that builds on mutual concerns to combat nuclear terrorism, reduce nuclear weaponry, and avoid the kind of bloodshed seen in the former Yugoslavia
Angola's last best chance for peace : an insider's account of the peace process by Paul J Hare( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russian negotiating behavior : continuity and transition by Jerrold L Schecter( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As he examines the historical and cultural underpinnings of contemporary Russian negotiating behavior, Schecter finds that the Bolshevik legacy remains largely intact despite the Soviet Union's demise. A step-by-step examination of the negotiating process, based on unique inside accounts from retired Soviet officials, exposes the areas of greatest continuity in Russian interests and style, as well as areas of change. Russian Negotiating Behavior also identifies counterstrategies that western negotiators can use to protect their interests, and it outlines the requirements for doing business in Russia's nascent market economy

Herding cats : multiparty mediation in a complex world( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An illustrious cast of practitioners describes their personal experiences in working to bring peace in significant conflicts across four continents. In each of the two dozen cases examined in this volume, mediation was a multiparty effort, involving a range of actors - individuals, states, international organizations, and nongovernmental organizations - working simultaneously or sequentially. The editors have framed the volume with discussions that link the practitioner cases to the scholarly literature on mediation, thereby situating the case studies in terms of theory while also drawing lessons for both scholars and practitioners that can help guide future endeavors. Main contents : Part I : Multiparty mediation : concepts, issues, strategies, and actors Part II : Conflict prevention and management Part III : Ending violent conflict : the road to settlement Part IV : Settlement and implementation Part V : Conclusion
Culture & conflict resolution by Kevin Avruch( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book explores divergent theories of social conflict and differing strategies that shape the conduct of diplomacy, and examines the role that culture has (and has not) played in conflict resolution." "Avruch challenges both scholars and practitioners not only to develop a clearer understanding of what culture is, but also to take that understanding and incorporate it into more effective conflict resolution processes."--Jacket

The enemy has a face : the Seeds of Peace experience by John Wallach( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every summer since 1993, the woods of Maine have witnessed a remarkable attempt to plant the idea of peace in the hearts and minds of the next generation of Middle East leaders. For three weeks, hundreds of Arab and Israeli teenagers leave behind the violence and hatred ingrained in their homelands to meet their "enemies" face to face. The Enemy Has a Face tells the story of these teenagers' experience at the Seeds of Peace International Camp in Maine and afterwards. At times it's an emotionally wrenching process, but it can produce surprising friendships and an enduring commitment to building a future of peaceful coexistence."--Jacket
Burundi on the brink, 1993-95 : a UN special envoy reflects on preventive diplomacy by Ahmedou Ould Abdallah( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ambassador Ould-Abdallah arrived in Burundi with a mandate from the United Nations to rescue the country's fledgling democracy and bring together political and ethnic rivals. His original mandate was for three months; he stayed two years. When he left, Burundi was by no means tranquil, but his efforts to foster political power sharing and to rein in extremism had helped to avert all-out civil war and to save Burundi from the genocidal fate of neighboring Rwanda." "In Burundi on the Brink, Ould-Abdallah pulls no punches as he describes the challenges he faced - not only from Burundians but also from members of the international community. He is equally revealing about how he sought to boost the limited leverage available to a UN special envoy by bold action, personal example, and close coordination with the local, diplomatic and NGO communities." "The volume concludes with an analysis of what Burundi tells us about what does and what doesn't work in the practical realm of preventive diplomacy."--Jacket
