Early Warning and Conflict Resolution

Stressing a systematic approach to the collection, processing, analysis and evaluation of information, this book asks questions which include: can we avert violent conflicts and wars in the future, and how can we prevent the growing numbers of refugees in the world? The key issues are: the manner in which the concept of early warning is translated into methodological approaches, identification of root causes of disputes and conflict situations, selection of indicators, determination of methodologies, use of new technologies, possible development of networking, and the search for conditions for possible settlement of conflicts. Other books by Kumar Rupesinghe include Conflict Resolution in Uganda and Ethnic conflicts and Human Rights .
