New book on “Civil Resistance and Conflict Transformation”

09/08/2014

We are happy to announce that Routledge just published a book edited by Véronique Dudouet, Director of our programme Agents of Change for Inclusive Transformation.

Entitled “Civil Resistance and Conflict Transformation: Transitions from Armed to Nonviolent Struggle”, it compiles conceptual and empirical insights on the decision-making process, rationale and determining factors which underlie the strategic shifts undertaken by armed movements towards nonviolent struggle for self-determination or regime change. Contributors from various academic disciplines, including Berghof staff member Katrin Planta, conducted case study analysis in West Papua, Palestine, South Africa, Chiapas, Colombia, Egypt and Nepal.

The production of this book was supported by the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, the German Foundation for Peace Research (DSF) and the Fritz Thysssen Stiftung.
