Overview

* Offers strategies for conflict transformation, based on a "conflict prevention toolbox," which deals with all aspects of the conflict cycle
* Burundi and Macedonia make powerful case studies

Breaking Cycles of Violence studies how the international community, working with local partners, can effectively pinpoint key breaking points and target resources for societies at risk of violent conflict.

This book provides policymakers, practitioners, scholars, and students with a framework for recognizing and tackling the complexities of internal and intrastate conflicts in order to avert violence and mass human suffering. It presents guidelines for using early warning indicators to assess the causes of conflict; using preventative action to contain it; and using multidimensional strategies to rehabilitate societies through the cycle of post-conflict peacebuilding.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Captures both the complexity and the promise of the new efforts to prevent deadly conflicts. The concept of ‘inventive diplomacy’ reaches beyond paper plans for institutional reform or virtuous recommendations to suggest how actors actually form alliances across borders and across sectors."

"A well-integrated and well-structured text."
