Since the end of the Cold War, conflict prevention and resolution, peacekeeping and peacebuilding have risen to the top of the international agenda. The fourth edition of this hugely popular text explains the key concepts, charts the development of the field, evaluates successes and failures, and assesses the main current challenges and debates in the second decade of the twenty-first century. In response to ongoing changes in the dynamics of global conflict, including the events and consequences of the Arab revolutions, the rise of the self-styled ÂIslamic StateÂ, the conflict in Ukraine, and the continued evolution of conflict resolution theory and practice, this edition provides a fresh assessment of the contemporary conflict landscape. Comprehensively updated and illustrated with new case studies, the book identifies a new pattern of Âtransnational conflictsÂ and argues for a response based on cosmopolitan conflict resolution, defined as the promotion of the cosmopolitan values on which the welfare and life hopes of future generations depend.
Part I offers a comprehensive survey of the theory and practice of conflict resolution. Part II sets the field within the context of rapid global change and addresses the controversies that have surrounded conflict resolution as it has entered the mainstream. Contemporary Conflict Resolution is essential reading for students of peace and security studies, conflict management and international politics, as well as for those working in non-governmental organizations and think-tanks.

"The fourth edition of this ground-breaking textbook presents the field of conflict resolution in a world after the failure of the Arab Spring, the rise of ISIS, a newly aggressive Russia, and increasing tensions in the South China Sea. Recognizing the challenges such a world presents, the authors nevertheless remain committed to a cosmopolitan vision of the field as the indispensable alternative to that other vision: If you want peace, prepare for war."Kevin Avruch, School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, George Mason University"Contemporary Conflict Resolution, now updated with current research and new approaches to deeply difficult protracted conflicts, remains the most comprehensive, well-conceputalized and useful introductory text to the wider fields of peace and conflict studies. I highly recommend this book to students, professors, policymakers and practitioners, it is an invaluable resource."John Paul Lederach, Kroc Institute, University of Notre Dame
