Rethinking and revising the established knowledge and practice of conflict resolution and management, this innovative book brings together complementary perspectives to consider novel approaches to resolving conflict after the collapse of the World Order.

Examining the current system of world disorder, the authors identify ways of operating constructively and navigating conflict in order to better manage and resolve it. Analysing conventional and hybrid conflict at both international and internal state level, they look to transform current scholarship on conflict resolution and management in international relations. Chapters rethink mediation; power in peace-making; prevention of escalation; governance, protest and revolt; inclusion and representation; and the individual as subject and object in conflict resolution and management. Paving the way for future research in the field, the book outlines the need to learn how to operate within the present world disorder in order to prevent the descent into entropy. By awakening realistic creativity and examining present characteristics and future possibilities, the book develops a more positive evolution which can reinstitute an effective new system of World Order.

Both prescriptive and analytical in approach, this insightful book will prove vital to students and scholars of international relations, political science and public policy, alongside policy makers looking to rethink their conflict resolution and management methods.
Critical Acclaim
‘Rethinking Conflict Resolution and Management is a book of big ideas on global peace and war. It introduces powerful new concepts, such as the “wall of inhibitions” through which belligerence breaks and constitutes a new normative reality. The volume is an inspiring, thought-provoking, but also entertaining read.’
– Timo Kivimaki, University of Bath, UK

‘Rethinking Conflict Resolution and Management is a magisterial contribution to the negotiation literature by two eminent scholars of international negotiation and conflict resolution. In a world where great power rivalries and conflict are accelerating and there is an urgent need for diplomacy to steer the world away from further conflict, this book offers tangible solutions and recommendations. It should be required reading for scholars and practitioners alike and will serve as a useful text for students who want to better understand the ingredients that go into successful diplomacy and conflict management.’
– Fen Osler Hampson, Carleton University, Canada
