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

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 257 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 255 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 ...

Islamic activism and U.S. foreign policy by Scott W Hibbard( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 254 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( )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For most Americans, the "exit" from Indochina occurred in 1973, when the last U.S. soldiers were evacuated from the roof of the embassy in Saigon. In fact, the final exit did not occur until two decades later, after the collapse of the Republic of Vietnam in 1975, the Cambodian revolution, and a decade of Vietnamese occupation of Cambodia. Only in the early 1990s were the major powers able to negotiate a settlement of the Cambodia conflict and withdraw from the region."

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 251 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
Russian negotiating behavior : continuity and transition by Jerrold L Schecter( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 248 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

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In each of the 24 cases examined in this volume, mediation was a multiparty effort, involving actors working simultaneously or sequentially. These accounts attest to the crucial importance of coordinating and building upon the efforts of other players
Culture & conflict resolution by Kevin Avruch( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 246 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

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

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 241 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
