Summary

Peace Research has become one of the most dynamic and innovative areas of research into war and conflict. This volume comprises essays by Prof. Peter Wallensteen, one of the leading scholars in this field over the past 30 years.Peace research began in the 1950s when centres were formed in the USA and Europe, and today there are research institutes and departments on every continent, with teaching and research programs in most countries, and peace researchers contribute to the development of international studies, development research and security analysis. Prof. Wallensteen has been a witness to much of this since forming the Department of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University in the late 1960s. The book focuses on four key fields of inquiry in peace research: 1) finding ways to understand and identify conflicts and undertake conflict resolution; 2) practising conflict resolution through academic diplomacy; 3) peaceful alternatives to war, notably sanctions; 4) the need to reflect on peace research itself.This book will be of great interest to all students of peace studies, conflict resolution, war and conflict studies, development studies and IR/security studies in general.
