"Such an idea has been floating since early 1970's. It would be fantastic if it materializes now. I would be quite happy to contribute to make this happen. Poorna Adhikary"

"While there are some settler who are extremists, the vast majority are not. Most realize that they will eventually be uprooted. So mentioning them in the same breath as Islamic extremists is disingenuous. That being said, it will not satisfy the…"

Elizabeth Gerhold Fautsch commented on TransConflict's blog post A political framework for a new approach to Israeli-Palestinian coexistence
"Interesting proposal in theory. I wonder if it satisfies the need of each side for an independent state that represents its people. I just don't see Israeli settlers or islamic extremists accepting this combined state."

"I don't think the two state in one confederation is a "separate but equal" proposal. If implemented correctly nobody would get the back of the bus because there wouldn't be segregation in either state. It sounds more like the…"

A political framework for a new approach to Israeli-Palestinian coexistence

A political framework for a new approach to Israeli-Palestinian coexistence provides for a joint country called Israel-Palestine having equal rights for all, separate geographical areas for the two peoples, the ability by individuals to live anywhere in the entire country (within practical limits) either as a citizen or as a legal resident, firm security guarantees for both peoples and substantial autonomy for both peoples.…See More

The elephant in the room – Bosnia and Herzegovina’s unmentionable Constitutional disability

Considering the experience of post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina over 18 years, it is time to seriously question whether it will ever be possible for the best executed, most well-intended socio-economic projects, donations, investments and interventions to take lasting and sustainable root in the current constitutional and political structure.…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.
