Recently, ethnic conflict has become the focus of social scientists and policy makers worldwide. Multiple interventions must occur at all levels to reduce cultural hostility and transform its nature over time. Reconcilable Differences considers how factors converge to shape the way ethnic conflicts are waged and how peaceful change occurs. In particular, the volume discusses perceptions, structures, and interactions that are contributing to the upsurge of inter-group antagonism, as well as critical mechanisms of the peacebuilding process.

The book contributes to our understanding of prolonged ethnopolitical conflicts, making it an invaluable text for policy makers and scholars, as well as undergraduate and graduate students.
