New book "Historical Dialogue and the Prevention of Mass Atrocities" is now available

Tuesday, May 12, 2020

A new book By Elazar Barkan, Constantin Goschler and James E. Waller is now available. This book brings together a diverse range of international voices from academia, policymaking and civil society to address the failure to connect historical dialogue with atrocity prevention discourse and provide insight into how conflict histories and historical memory act as dynamic forces, actively facilitating or deterring current and future conflict.

Established on a variety of international case studies combining theoretical and practical points of view, the book envisions an integrated understanding of how historical dialogue can inform policy, education, and the practice of atrocity prevention. In doing so, it provides a vital basis for the development of preventive policies sensitive to the importance of conflict histories and for further academic study on the topic.
It will be of interest to all scholars and students of history, psychology, peace studies, international relations and political science.
