The Psychology of Resolving Global Conflicts

| the entire program

The twentieth century has been deemed the bloodiest of all by scholars with more than 60 million people, possibly 100 million people killed at the hands of government decrees and enacted by both civilians and soldiers. The United States is still engaged in two wars and Israel just killed more than 1200 Palestinians in its Gaza incursion. War wages on in Darfur, the Congo, and throughout the planet. Some believe the election of Barack Obama signals a new turn towards less violence, less war and more dialogue. So how do we resolve violent conflict, particularly when they are deeply, deeply acrimonious? What are the assumptions we just might have to let go of?

GUESTS: Mari Fitzduff, professor and director of the International Program in Co-extisence and Conflict at Brandeis University. She has authored a number of books, including the award winning, “Beyond Violence: Conflict Resolution Processes in Northern Ireland” and is co-editor of the three volume, “The Psychology of Resolving Global Conflict: From War to Peace.” Douglas Fry, author of numerous books, including “Beyond War and the Human Potential for Peace and Peaceful Societies.” Douglas Noll, lawyer, and mediator specializing in peacmaking.

    As a “troubled Vietnam Vet” with a long history of “trouble” over my lifetime since my return to the USA I am so very glad to now be able to read and hear authors such as Douglas P. Fry (and Frans de Waal as well; and others joining in day by day) for they are researching and writing about topics I have long struggled with and giving me words to use to express myself that ring true. I appreciate this immensely for it makes me seem (and feel) far less “troubled” now that I have academic verification of what I have been ranting and raving about now for so many years. I highly recommend that others read Douglas P. Fry’s latest book, Beyond War: The Human Potential for Peace, then join the choir and sing out loud and strong. It is possible to change the thinking, and subsequent behavior, of a culture—remember the Hundredth Monkey story and Margret Mead’s comment about the spreading of Peace beginning with a small group! And the more recent Tipping Point theory as well. Fry and de Waal, and others, are giving us words to build on, use them to spread the word–we can become a peaceful global community if we want to; but we might have to work it!
