NEW PUBLICATION: "Decolonizing Peace" by Victoria Fontan
...
We are proud to announce the latest publication from our Professor Victoria Fontan, Associate Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies and Head of the Department of Peace and Conflict Studies.
In this book, Victoria Fontan questions the pre-established assumptions that exist in peace and conflict studies, and brings forward an alternative epistemology that relates to non-conventional initiatives for peace that exist in various parts of the world.
She argues that the "first step toward decolonizing peace and conflict studies must be our realization that we are powerless in facing the destruction and injustices that we invariably bring with our peace.
