This major new Handbook provides a cutting-edge and transdisciplinary overview of the main issues, debates, state-of-the-art methods, and key concepts in peace and conflict studies today. The fields of peace and conflict studies have grown exponentially since being initiated by Professor Johan Galtung half a century ago. They have forged a transdisciplinary and professional identity distinct from security studies, political science, and international relations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘It is a great privilege for me to recommend the Routledge Handbook of Peace and Conflict Studies. Peace and Conflict Studies were initiated by Johan Galtung more than fifty years ago. Since then these studies have expanded enormously and developed their own unique identity. This Handbook contains many outstanding contributions by peace researchers, scholars and others, including important introductory and concluding articles by the editors themselves. It is a “must-read” for all students, teachers and researchers of peace and conflict studies, and of conflict resolution. In general, the Routledge Handbook of Peace and Conflict Studies will be useful for all who are working in the field of conflict resolution in the world.’

Dr Ole D. Mjøs, Chairman of the Centre for Peace Studies, University of Tromsø , Norway and Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee

'This text would serve as a good reference volume for those scholars whose interests range from mediation to women's rights to psychology.' Choice
