This book analyses the use of communication in resolving conflicts, with a focus on de-escalation and processes of peacebuilding and peace formation. From the employment of hate radio in the Rwanda genocide, to the current conflict between Russia and the Ukraine following events in the Crimea, communication and the media are widely recognized as powerful tools in conflicts and war. Although there has been significant academic attention on the relationship between the media, conflict and war, academic efforts to understand this relationship have tended to focus primarily on the links between communication and conflict, rather than on communication and peace. In order to make sense of peace it is essential to look at communication in its many facets, mediated or not. This is true within many of the diverse strands that make up the field of communication and peace, but it is also true in the sense that a holistic and interdisciplinary approach is missing from the literature. This book addresses this widely acknowledged lacuna by providing an interdisciplinary perspective on the field, bringing together relevant, but so far largely isolated, streams of research. In doing so, it aims to provide a platform for further reflection of the meaning of, and requirements for, peace in our contemporary world with a focus on de-escalation, conflict transformation, reconciliation and processes of peacebuilding – as opposed to conflict escalation or crisis intervention. This volume will be of much interest to students of peace and conflict studies, peacebuilding, media and communication studies, security studies and IR in general.

Peace and Conflict are commonly understood as polar opposites. In a polarised opposition there is no place for conflict in peace, and peace, the privileged term of the binary opposition, needs to be pure and homogeneous, cleansed of any unlicensed differences and contradictions. Yet, a radically plural and demo-cratic politic must harbour conflicting and antagonistic views of things; opposition is internal to it; and its view of freedom says that "freedom is always the freedom of those who think differently". In contrast, the ideal of a homogeneous, self--same, indivisibly unified society is totalitarian and repressive of the very differenc-es that make a society, any society, possible. The ocgaErtizers of the 2nd International Conference on Communication and Media Studies at Eastern Mediterranean. University, 2-4 May 2007, thought that a deconstructive and feminist framework that destabilises the entrenched certain-ties of polar oppositions and an ethical response to the irreducible otherness of the other, as well as to one's own alterity, would be very appropriate and relevant in our times for rethinking these issues, and relied on that framework in formulat-ing the theme of the conference as "Communication in Peace/Conflict in Communication" to emphasise the interrelationship of the two parts separated by the slash, as well as the formulation of the subtopics that were listed in the call for papers. This volume includes work from around the world that responded to that call.

Scholarship on the psychology of peace has been accumulating for decades. The approach employed has been predominantly centered on addressing and preventing conflict and violence and less on the conditions associated with promoting peace. Concerns around nuclear annihilation, enemy images, discrimination, denial of basic human needs, terrorism and torture have been the focal points of most research. The Psychological Components of a Sustainable Peace moves beyond a prevention-orientation to the study of the conditions for increasing the probabilities for sustainable, cooperative peace. Such a view combines preventative scholarship with a promotive-orientation to the study of peaceful situations and societies. The contributors to this volume examine the components of various psychological theories that contribute to the promotion of a harmonious, sustainable peace. Underlying this orientation is the belief that promoting the ideas and actions which can lead to a sustainable, harmonious peace will not only contribute to the prevention of war, but will also lead to more positive, constructive relations among people and nations and to a more sustainable planet. The Psychological Components of a Sustainable Peace is valuable and stimulating reading for researchers in peace psychology, political psychology, and conflict resolution as well as others who are interested in developing a sustainable, harmonious world.

How do women talk about peace and violence? What moves ordinary women into extraordinary activism? This book profiles ten influential women activists, relating their experiences and rhetorically analyzing their public communication in and about their efforts for peace. Authors also employ feminist theory to gauge the effectiveness of each activist, from Americans Ida B. Wells and Jane Addams to those still speaking for peace, such as Liberia's Ruth Perry and the former Burma's Aung San Suu Kyi. Visit our website for sample chapters!
