Overview

'This book addresses the concept and definition of peace, and the purpose and meaning of peace studies from a regional perspective... the book challenges the narrow approach that limits peace studies to studies of conflict resolution or conflict management. It draws attention to the social and political realities of the colonial and post-colonial world and the need for "peace with justice "' - Journal of Peace Research

The exciting new Series—South Asian Peace Studies—has been conceived to showcase significant writings on peace studies from and about the region. The emphasis will be on essays, which demonstrate the importance of changing direction in various frameworks–from conflict management to peace, from national security to human security, from revenge to reconciliation, and from rights to justice.

This, the inaugural volume in the Series introduces the concept, scope, and main concerns of peace studies. The 19 essays are grouped in three broad sections. The first discusses definitions of peace studies and its main themes. The second section looks at recent cases of conflict in the region while the third considers new paths to conflict resolution based on dialogue and justice.

Meet the Author

Ranabir Samaddar is the Director of the Calcutta Research Group, Kolkata, and belongs to the school of critical thinking. He has worked extensively on issues of justice and rights in the context of conflicts in South Asia.

Samaddar’s particular researches have spread over a wide area comprising migration and refugee studies, the theory and practices of dialogue, nationalism and postcolonial statehood in South Asia, and new regimes of technological restructuring and labour control.

His recent political writings The Emergence of the Political Subject (2009) and The Nation Form (2012) have signalled a new turn in critical postcolonial thinking and have challenged some of the prevailing accounts of the birth of nationalism and the nation state.
