This source book is for people working in areas affected by conflict and violence. Easy to use, well laid out, and including helpful visual materials, it provides a range of practical tools - processes, ideas, techniques -- for tackling conflict. These tools have been developed over a number of years by the organization, Responding to Conflict (RTC), in collaboration with practitioners from around the world. It is divided into 4 Parts: · Understanding: A guide to understanding conflict, including practical techniques for conflict analysis and the critical issues that must be taken into account - power, culture, identity, gender and rights.· Strategies: How to build effective strategies to address conflict, including how to influence policy within organizations.· Action: Intervening in situations of acute conflict; addressing the consequences; and working on the social fabric which conditions the emergence of conflict.· Evaluation: The skills involved in the necessary processes of evaluation and learning in order to improve future interventions.The book embodies and reflects the rich diversity of over 300 practitioners from some 70 countries who, in RTC Working with Conflict courses, have pooled their variegated experience and adapted these methods to suit a wide range of situations. Examples and cases are drawn from around the world - including Cambodia, Afghanistan, South Africa, Kenya, Northern Ireland and Colombia. The book highlights the options available to individuals and organizations; equips them with a basis on which they can plan what responses are possible; and strengthens their capacity to engage in useful interventions. The final chapter provides a list of key conflict-related and peace-building resources, including organizations, publications and websites.For all practitioners who are working in conflict-prone and unstable parts of the world in the fields of development, relief work, human rights, community relations, peace and reconciliation, this book should prove an invaluable support.

Civil Resistance

Comparative Perspectives on Nonviolent Struggle

Author: Kurt Schock

In the past quarter century the world has witnessed dramatic social and political transformations, due in part to an upsurge in civil resistance. There have been significant uprisings around the globe, including the toppling of communist regimes in Eastern Europe, the Color Revolutions, the Arab Spring, protests against war and economic inequality, countless struggles against corruption, and demands for more equitable distribution of land. These actions have attracted substantial scholarly attention, reflected in the growth of literature on social movements and revolution as well as literature on nonviolent resistance. Until now, however, the two bodies of literature have largely developed in parallel—with relatively little acknowledgment of the existence of the other. In this useful collection, an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars takes stock of the current state of the theoretical and empirical literature on civil resistance. Contributors analyze key processes of nonviolent struggle and identify both frictions and points of synthesis between the narrower literature on civil resistance and the broader literature on social movements and revolution. By doing so, Civil Resistance: Comparative Perspectives on Nonviolent Struggle pushes the boundaries of the study of civil resistance and generates social scientific knowledge that will be helpful for all scholars and activists concerned with democracy, human rights, and social justice.

A mixture of theoretical analysis and case studies from Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East, this book examines non-violent direct action, political action, economic sanctions and social movements as alternative remedies in the struggle for justice. The authors thus address the basic questions that underlie current debates in international politics over the use of preventive diplomacy, humanitarian intervention and international enforcement action.

Seit mehr als 25 Jahren gilt die Methode des Harvard-Konzepts als die erfolgreichste aller Verhandlungstechniken. Ihr Ziel ist, mit dem Verhandlungspartner zu einem gemeinsamen Ja zu kommen. Doch um unsere Interessen zu wahren, müssen wir häufig ein klares Nein aussprechen. Wie lässt sich aber ein Nein so vermitteln, dass es unser Gegenüber nicht verstimmt und damit negativ auf uns und das Gesamtergebnis zurückfällt? Der weltbekannte Verhandlungsexperte William Ury zeigt, wie Sie aus diesem Dilemma herauskommen: mit einem positiven Nein! Ob Sie Konditionsgespräche oder Gehaltsverhandlungen führen oder den Auftrag eines wichtigen Kunden ablehnen müssen - mit dieser einfachen Methode kann jeder ein Nein so vermitteln, dass unser Gegenüber nicht vor den Kopf gestoßen und ein erfolgreiches Ergebnis erzielt wird.

Initially published in 1997, the second edition includes a new preface, including observations by Berger about the relationship between modernity and humor.

Der Untergang des Morgenlandes

Warum die islamische Welt ihre Vormacht verlor

Author: Bernard Lewis

Publisher: BASTEI LÜBBE

Page: 254

Die Probleme der islamischen Welt sind unübersehbar, ebenso deren Folgen für den Westen. Mit dieser provokanten Feststellung analysiert Beranard Lewis die historische Entwicklung des Orients - insbesondere des Osmanischen Reiches und seine Nachfolgestaaten: Die einstige Drehscheibe der Kultur, des Fortschritts und der Kunst verlor im Laufe der Geschichte ihre zivilisatorische Vormachtrolle gegenüber dem Westen und geriet in einen konfliktträchtigen Dualismus zwischen Tradition und Moderne. Das E-Book wendet sich an Leser und Leserinnen, die sich für Lösungsansätze der Krise zwischen der islamischen und der westlichen Welt interessieren: Themenfelder wie Wohlstand und Macht, soziale und kulturelle Schranken, Modernisierung und soziale Gleichheit, Säkularismus und Zivilgesellschaft. Zeit, Raum und Modernität sind die Leitfäden der Darstellung. Die Originalausgabe des Bandes aus der Feder des Princeton-Emeritus Lewis erschien unter dem Titel "What went wrong?".

Aung San Suu Kyi ist eine Gefangene in ihrem eigenen Land. Die Tochter des 1947 ermordeten Freiheitskämpfers Aung San steht an der Spitze der Protestbewegung gegen das Militärregime in Birma, ist jedoch von der Außenwelt abgeschnitten. Das demokratisch gewählte Oberhaupt Birmas steht seit 1989, mit kurzen Unterbrechungen, unter Hausarrest. In der Zeit ihrer Isolation ist die Friedensnobelpreisträgerin Aung San Suu Kyi zur Symbolfigur für die Auflehnung des Volkes Birma gegen ein grausames Militärregime geworden. Die hier aufgezeichneten Gespräche mit Alan Clements gewähren Einblicke in Aung San Suu Kyis vom Buddhismus geprägtes Leben und ihren Einsatz für den Frieden. Die Neuauflage ist um ein aktuelles Vorwort von Alan Clements, eine umfangreiche Chronologie der Ereignisse in Birma (bis 2008) und zahlreiche Internetlinks zu Birma ergänzt.

Strategic Nonviolent Power

The Science of Satyagraha

Author: Mark A. Mattaini

Publisher: Athabasca University Press

ISBN: 1927356415

Page: 328

History indicates that there are powerful routes to liberation from oppression that do not involve violence. Mohandas Gandhi called for a science of nonviolent action, one based on satyagraha, or the “insistence on truth.” As Gandhi understood, nonviolent resistance is not passive, nor is it weak; rather, such action is an exercise of power. Despite the success of Gandhi’s “Quit India” movement, the resources dedicated to the application of rigorous science to nonviolent struggle have been vanishingly small. By contrast, almost unimaginable levels of financial and human resources have been devoted to the science and technologies of killing, war, and collective violence. Mark Mattaini reviews the history and theory of nonviolent struggles against oppression and discusses recent research that indicates the substantial need for and advantage of nonviolent alternatives. He then offers a detailed exploration of principles of behavioral systems science that appear to underlie effective strategic civil resistance and “people power.” Strategic Nonviolent Power proposes that the route to what Gandhi described as the “undreamt of and seemingly impossible discoveries” of nonviolent resistance is the application of rigorous science. Although not a simple science, Mattaini’s application of ecological science grounded in the science of behaviour brings exceptional power to the struggle for justice and liberation. At a time when civil resistance is actively reshaping global political realities, the science of nonviolent struggle deserves the attention of the scientific, activist, strategic, military, spiritual, and diplomatic communities, as well as the informed public.

Crimes of Dissent

Civil Disobedience, Criminal Justice, and the Politics of Conscience

Page: 256

From animal rights to anti-abortion, from tax resistance to anti-poverty, activists from across the political spectrum often deliberately break the law to further their causes. While not behaviors common to hardened or self-seeking criminals, the staging of civil disobedience, non-violent resistance, and direct action can nevertheless trigger a harsh response from law enforcement, with those arrested risking jail time and criminal records. Crimes of Dissent features the voices of these activists, presenting a fascinating insider’s look at the motivations, costs and consequences of deliberately violating the law as a strategy of social change. Crimes of Dissent provides readers with an in-depth understanding of why activists break the law, and what happens to them when they do. Using dynamic examples, both historic and recent, Jarret Lovell explores how seasoned protesters are handled and treated by the criminal justice system, shedding light on the intersection between the political and the criminal. By adopting the unique vantage of the street-level activist, Crimes of Dissent provides a fascinating view of protest from the ground, giving voice to those who refuse to remain silent by risking punishment for their political actions.
