Hacia la transformación de conflictos y una paz justaHandbook Article

[Resumen traducido automáticamente] Se ocupa de los desafíos de vincular la teoría, la investigación y la práctica, y ofrece estrategias para hacerlo en todas las áreas relevantes del cambio social. El autor sostiene que las fuentes estructurales de conflicto han sido relativamente descuidadas en el análisis de conflictos y en el diseño de procesos de intervención. Hasta que esta situación no se revierta, será difícil generar relaciones estables, pacíficas y justas. (revisado para la edición impresa de 2004)

Friedliche EinmischungStrukturen, Prozesse und Strategien zur konstruktiven Bearbeitung ethnopolitischer Konflikte (Report Nr. 1)

Die Hoffnungen auf eine friedliche Welt nach dem Ende des Ost-West-Konflikts sind verflogen. Zwischen 1988 und 1990 schien die Zahl der Kriege zurückzugehen. Danach hat sich jedoch der bereits seit 1960 bestehende Trend einer nahezu kontinuierlichen Zunahme der Zahl militärischer Konflikte wieder durchgesetzt. 1993 zählte die niederländische PIOOM-Forschungsgruppe insgesamt 22 Kriege mit mehr als 1.000 Todesopfern und 84 Kriege mit einer geringeren Opferzahl.

Peaceful InterventionStructures, Processes and Strategies for the Constructive Regulation of Ethnopolitical Conflicts

The hopes for a more peaceful world following the end of the East–West conflict have evaporated. Between 1988 and 1990, the number of wars seemed to decline. After that, however, the trend that had existed since 1960 towards a virtually continuous increase in the number of military conflicts resumed. In 1993, the Netherlands-based PIOOM research group recorded a total of twenty-two wars involving over 1,000 deaths, and eighty-four wars involving a lesser number of victims.
