Conflict Research Society members Hugh Miall, Tom Woodhouse, Oliver Ramsbotham release their latest book along with Christopher Mitchell – The Contemporary Conflict Resolution Reader.
These esteemed professors have previously co-authored three editions of Contemporary Conflict Resolution, with a fourth edition due later this year. The forthcoming edition will tackle contemporary conflict theories and recent issues including how current theories relate to new groups such as ISIS.
This reader complements these four book editions above assessing both classical and contemporary works on various streams of conflict and peace research.
The book launch was hosted by the Conflict Analysis Research Centre (CARC) at the University of Kent. This was followed by a lively roundtable discussion with CARC members and fellow students. The panel included the Philip Cunliffe as chair, the authors, Yeshim Harris, Director of Engi, and Judith Large, a senior fellow at CARC.
