"This is the Spanish version of Cultivating Peace"
Conflict over natural resources -- such as land, water, and forests -- has for ages been widespread. Whether it be a local dispute between neighboring farmers or an international debate over shared resources (such as waterways), people everywhere compete for the natural resources they need to ensure or enhance their quality of life. The conflict may unfold as a simple war of words, or it may escalate to armed confrontation with loss of life.
"Cultivating Peace" presents original case studies from Africa, Asia, and Latin America, which describe important experience on moving from conflict to collaborative modes of management. The accompanying essays draw on the case studies, grounding theory in hard-won experience. This cross-fertilization of practical experience with conceptual insight creates a unique dialogue on lessons learned and identifies strategic gaps in our understanding of this complex and important issue. Cultivating Peace will appeal to researchers, scholars, and students in political science, natural resource management, anthropology, development studies, and conflict resolution.
