Pacification or Peacebuilding? Defence, Foreign Policy and Conflict Transformation

This Review from the Committee for Conflict Transformation Support (CCTA) was recommended by MPI facilitator Joan McGregor. The introduction to this issue of CCTS Review states:

This is an unusual issue of the Review, being a record of an informal workshop, rather than a seminar. There was no paper circulated in advance and there were several, informal opening presentations. The first, by Diana Francis, was given on paper, since her voice was nearly gone. All others were delivered orally. In order to retain their immediacy, we have used direct rather than indirect speech in reporting them. However, they are not literal transcriptions of the talks.

In this article, you will find Diana Francis' presentation on Two World Views: Peacebuilding and Pacification. Those who have taken Joan's course would be familiar with this diagram.

The CCTS review is available from Conciliation Resources. You can find additional CCTS Reviews here.

Perspectives on Conflict-Transformation from Peace Activists, Scholars, and Peacebuilders

2020 marked the 20th anniversary of the International Institute of Peace and Development Studies – IIPDS. Since its formation in 2000, IIPDS serves as a meeting point of diverse minds, ideologies, professions, gender orientations, languages, religions, and cultures from various countries and continents. In close coordination with ARF, the Institute has built the capacity and empowered thousands of youth, women, children, and young adults and has hosted dozens of workshops, consultations, roundtables, and conferences where senior and junior scholars had the opportunity to exchange ideas and dreams.

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, IIPDS has worked on a publication where senior and junior scholars have contributed to produce more than forty articles around the theme of conflict transformation from the perspectives of peace activists, scholars, and peacebuilders.
