A Public Peace Process: Sustained Dialogue to Transform Racial and Ethnic Conflicts
Harold Saunders, former Assistant Secretary of State and negotiator of the Camp David Accords and now Director of International Programs at the Kettering Foundation and Director of the International Institute for Sustained Dialogue, distills over 35 years of experience working with conflicts across the globe. This 1999 book (St. Martin’s Press) describes how sustained dialogue can help conflicting groups of citizens move toward resolution.
Many of the human conflicts that seize our attention are not ready for formal mediation and negotiation: People do not negotiate about identity, fear, historic grievance, and injustice. Sustained dialogue provides citizens outside government can change their conflictual relationships. Harold Saunders’ A Public Peace Process provides citizens instruments for transforming conflict. Saunders outlines a systematic approach for citizens to use in reducing racial, ethnic, and other deep-rooted tensions in their countries, communities, and organizations. Order here at Amazon.com.
