Why should we care about Crimea?

Beyond the question of what exactly the Western powers expect of Russia and how likely it is that Russia will meet those expectations there is a more fundamental question that should be asked. Why should the west care what happens with Crimea? What US national interests, for example, are at stake there? What difference would it make if the people of Crimea decide to leave Ukraine – as the Kosovo Albanians did with Serbia – and join Russia. …See More

Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
TransConflict undertakes conflict transformation projects and research throughout the Western Balkans.

Conflict transformation is a long-term, gradual process, demanding sustained engagement and interaction. Accordingly, TransConflict seeks to contend with the particularities of conflict within specific geographical areas and target groups.

TransConflict focuses on five specific types of transformation (cf. Lederach, Vayrynen – Selected Quotes):

- Actor – modifying actors’ goals and their approach to pursuing these goals.
- Context – influencing the context in which conflict occurs so as to challenge the meaning and perceptions of conflict itself, particularly the respective attitudes and understandings of specific actors towards one another.
- Issue – redefining the issues that are central to the prevailing conflict, and reformulating the position of key actors on those very issues.
- Rule – changes in the norms and rules governing decision-making at all levels determine the extent to which conflicts are constructively resolved.
- Structural – conflict is underpinned by, and embedded in, the prevailing structure of relationships, power distributions and socio-economic conditions, changes to which impact the very fabric of interaction between previously incompatible actors, issues and goals.

 I am interested in what fictional literature TransConflicts members feel gave most insight into the cognitive processes of adversaries in conflict. Also I am interested in what fictional literature gives most insight into a different culture than their own. This I confess for a PH.D study I am doing at Anglia Ruskin Cambridge.

I am seeking similar views from writers, publishers ( on all platforms) and development aid and peacekeeping practitconers ( in gov's and NGO's) elsewhere. I am grateful for discourse and help.
