Reconciliation and conflict resolution

This book is the first systematic examination of the impact of reconciliation on restoring and maintaining peace following civil and international conflicts. Through eleven comparative case studies of civil war and eight of international conflict, it constructs a surprising explanation for when and why reconciliation restores social order.
The civil war cases reveal that successful reconciliation is associated with a process of national forgiveness, not merely negotiated settlement.
War and Reconciliation
All successful cases followed a four-step pattern of public truth telling, justice short of revenge, redefinition of the identities of former belligerents, and a call for a new relationship. The book argues that success is not solely the result of rational choice decision making. On the international level, however, successful reconciliation was not a part of a forgiveness process.

Reconciliation was successful in bringing about sustained peace when it was associated with a signaling process—an exchange of costly, novel, voluntary, and irrevocable concessions in a negotiated bargain. This result is consistent with realist notions of the limits of international society and illustrates the context in which a rational choice model is appropriate.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION • Community Leaders Contribute to Sustainable Peace
The book's approach, integrating emotion with reasoning and linking political science to scientific research in other disciplines, particularly biology and neuroscience, has broad implications for social science theory. This is an exciting and important book, which contributes profoundly to integrating two increasingly significant matters: the attainment of durable peaceful relations after violent conflict, and the synthesis of evolutionary psychology with major streams of social science theory. War and peace are older than humanity. In order to move on, we have to put hard feelings behind us.
This book clarifies in delightful detail the role of forgiveness in the international arena.
