Waged Conflicts: Principles and Practice
on the one of the founding concepts of PARCC, Bruce Dayton and Louis
Kriesberg are co-editing a book on constructively managed conflicts.
With contributions from more than a dozen scholars from the U.S. and abroad,
this volume will be grouped into three major sections: (1) conceptual pieces
that explore the meaning and dimensions of constructive conflict management;
(2) case studies illustrating conflict episodes which were waged constructively;
and (3) future-looking chapters that identify emerging or ongoing conflicts and
propose pathways for their constructive development. Authors plan to convene via
webinar in Spring 2014, and a book conference is planned for later in the year.
This project is part of Kriesberg and Dayton's broader project on Constructive Transformation, a study of when, why, and how violent opposition movements (and those they are
challenging) take steps towards peaceful political incorporation.
