Críticas:

This book stores up immense usefulness. First, it is written by inter-disciplinary team of scholars enriched by theory and experience of many non-linear conflict contexts. Second, it seeks to bridge the gap between rational, spiritual, emotional and scientific knowledge and builds cycles of peace ranging from early warning, planning, intervention, monitoring and evaluation of peace process. Third, multiple perspectives including [a] cultural one weaved into a systemic whole has made the book amply broad to capture multi-track me-diation, intervention and peace building activities. As the book is a pioneer effort integrat-ing systemic thinking into peace building theory and practice, it is useful to political lead-ers, policy makers, conflict experts, teachers and students in broadening their understand-ing about peaceful transformation of complex conflicts into stable peace. (Reporter Weekly November 2011)

The book, based on a project at the Berghof Foundation, outlines many interesting facets of constructivist theory around systemic thinking, complexity theory and action-research in the context of international conflict transformation work. It is a powerful confirmation [...] of the value of qualitative approaches to better understand conflict and peace processes, aiming for more reflexivity when it comes to analyse our role in peace negotiations and peacebuilding.

Während der erste Teil grundsätzliche theoretische Überlegungen hinsichtlich der Kompa-tibilität von systemtheoretischem Denken und Friedens- und Konfliktforschung enthält, geht es im zweiten Teil um die praktische Dimension des Problemfeldes. Konkret bedeu-tet diese Zweiteilung, dass im ersten Teil unterschiedliche theoretische Konzepte aus der soziologischen und der politikwissenschaftlichen Theoriebildung ebenso diskutiert werden wie konstruktivistische bzw. erkenntnistheoretische Ansätze. [...] Ein solcher Aufbau birgt grundsätzlich die Gefahr, dass sich Theoriebildung und Empirie voneinander entfernen, was für diesen Band erfreulicherweise jedoch nicht zutrifft.

Reseña del editor:

This is the first comprehensive publication analyzing the value added by integrating systemic thinking and peace building theory and practice. Against the background of different case studies, practitioners and scholars frame their various understandings of systemic thinking and present a great variety of systemic concepts, such as systems theory, systemic action research, and constellation work. Furthermore, the book links current discussions about peace building with various systemic discourses. It analyzes to what extent systemic thinking and systemic methods are helpful in further developing existing approaches to conflict transformation. In addition, most recent debates in the peace building field - e.g. on liberal peace, the relevance of conflict analysis for strategy planning, bridging the attribution gap, the non-linearity of conflict dynamics, etc. - are taken into account. *** "This book stores up immense usefulness. .... As the book is a pioneer effort integrating systemic thinking into peace building theory and practice, it is useful to political leaders, policy makers, conflict experts, teachers and students in broadening their understanding about peaceful transformation of complex conflicts into stable peace." - The Reporter Weekly, November 6, 2011
