First published in 1999, this volume analyses the conditions related not only to physical violence, but also to domination sustained by cultural norms, development practice and environmental policies. Peace research can be established as an integrative project by developing a conceptually coherent map which helps to reveal the locations and sources of violence, examine strategies to deal with them and illuminate structural transitions to a non-hierarchical world order. The themes in various chapters of this book can be submerged under the disciplinary goal of peace research which links the management and prevention of violent conflicts to non-violent structural transformations.
