A Handbook for Conflict Resolution in South Asia

By Sundeep Waslekar

Modern conflict resolution has emerged as an independent discipline since the 1980s. In many parts of the world training in coflict resolution is imparted through workshops especially designed for diplomats, military officers and politicians interested in negotiating peace. This handbook is addressed to political leaders in South Asia who wish to participate in the process of conflict resolution. It combines the knowledge of concepts and techniques developed in the West with the political realities in South Asia. The handbook also contains a manual for organizing workshops including a detailed report on the first such workshop conducted in South Asia in May 1995. Besides practitioners, scholars and researchers in the field of conflict resolution should find this pioneering document of immense benefit in their work.
