Assessing the Impact of Peace Building Processes.
Kimmel, Paul R.
It is important for those interested in contributing to a stable world peace to focus their attention and work on positive, proactive programs that will promote peace building rather than negative, reactive programs intended to reduce violence. This paper focuses on such a training program for international negotiators. The program is intended to develop self-awareness and intercultural communication skills that will enable the negotiators to understand and collaborate with each other more effectively in future negotiations. The impact of these informed negotiations on the process of peace building is assessed. Peace building is a process that takes place through social organizations and relationships that can deal with the conflicts, stresses, and frustrations that are inevitable in international relations without resorting to violent behavior and war.
