Ritual and Symbol in Peacebuildingby Lisa Schirch
Pub. Date: 11/28/2004
Publisher: Kumarian Press, Inc.
Conflict is drama, Schirch (peacebuilding, Eastern Mennonite U.) reminds readers, which is why it is always splattered across the media. She argues that peacebuilding can and needs to be equally dramatic in order to capture people's imagination and interest, and that peacebuilders are the choreographers, directors, and set designers. Rital does not replace other tools for conflict transformation, but supplements traditional front door approaches that tend to be limited to direct, rational, and linear modes.
