In his lead article, Christopher Mitchell, Professor Emeritus of George Mason University’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR), sets out a framework for thinking systematically about the relationship between conflict and (social) change. He considers necessary changes to bring about the resolution of conflict, as well as obstacles to such changes, and envisions possible roles for agents of change. Five authors have expanded on, and critically reviewed, this lead article: Ed Garcia (International Alert), Chris Spies (UNDP Guyana), Ilana Shapiro (University of Massachusetts), Vivienne Jabri (King's College London) and Daniela Körppen (Berghof Peace Support).
