Adrian Little: Enduring Conflict: Challenging the Signature of Peace and Democracy39:10:00Why does the resolution of conflict play such a significant role in the operation of contemporary politics? Why is it assumed that the normative basis on which most 'normal' societies operate is devoid of the kinds of conflict that permeate societies with a less cohesive foundation? This lecture analyses the assumption that the absence of conflict is a normative good for any society and questions why the lack of such conflict is assumed to be the foundation of a stable political environment. In so doing it investigates the many presuppositions and assumptions that underpin these normative perspectives and the ways in which they have developed within the literature on peace and conflict resolution in societies such as Northern Ireland.

MEEI has become a shining beacon of hope for all people of the Holy Land - and around the world. MEEI was the inspiration of Abuna Elias Chacour, now the Archbishop of the Melkite Catholic Church in Akko, Haifa, Nazareth, and all Galilee. Father Chacour realized that the future of the villagers in Ibillin, of the citizens of the state of Israel, and indeed the future of all of Godês children in the Holy Land, would depend on the education of the young in the ways of peace, reconciliation, respect, and justice. Father Chacour thus began his life work to build schools to educate children of all ethnic and religious backgrounds, based upon these principles.

Care of the Self and the Development of the Moral Resources as a Foundation to Peacebuilding1:00:11This lecture was presented at National Peace Academyês 2011 Peacebuilding Peacelearning Intensive in Burlington, Vermont. Dale Snauwaert shared the idea of right relationship with oneês self as an essential mode of peace learning, which is foundational to peacebuilding. The basic assumption of the presentation was that peacebuilding requires not only the transformation of social structures but also the transformation of consciousness. ”Unilateral internal disarmament” is necessary for both inner and outer peace. Peacebuilding requires a –being orientation” to self-identity, which both implies and requires respect and care for the self, and the development of internal moral resources, including the capacity for critical self-reflection and transformation.Peacebuilding, Peace Education
