Must We Fight?
From the Battlefield to the Schoolyard - A New Perspective on Violent Conflict and Its Prevention
Paperback ISBN: 0787961035
Promoting a conceptual framework called the "Third Side," Ury (director, Project on Preventing War at the Program on Negotiation, Harvard Law School) and collaborators reflect on the origins of violence in humans and examine violence prevention initiatives. Drawn from two public symposia organized by Ury's Project, seven papers from an interdisciplinary group of authors examine primate aggression, discuss anthropological evidence of violence in humans, look at a Boston program against youth violence, and discuss how some Indian cities avoided the ethnic riots that killed hundreds in other cities. Finally a simulation of a racial incident at a public high school is presented to demonstrate the "Third Side" model, in which the general community is considered the third side in a conflict between two parties.
