  • Peace and conflict transformation in Southeast Asia
    Kamarlzamar Askandar Ed.
    Peace and Conflict Transformation in Southeast Asia” textbook mostly utilises the perspective of “mainstream” peace and conflict studies traditions. It is the examples offered in the discussion of theories and the case studies where the Southeast Asian perspective and flavour take centre stage. The textbook highlight some instances where there is a clear Southeast Asian approach to conflict management, like the “ASEAN Way” of decision-making processes and dispute resolution. This textbook also include processes of conflict transformation, peacemaking, and peacebuilding highlighted in other publications, for example, the UN mediation guide. This was done when it was felt that certain types of guidelines could give readers a more comprehensive view of the process. Cropping such guides or simply including short excerpts would not do justice to the information offered therein and may even lead to confusion. We then make the connection between these points and the case studies to ensure better understanding.
