The Berghof Handbook Dialogue Series is an offshoot of the Berghof Handbook for Conflict Transformation. Each topic in the series is chosen because it is particularly relevant to societies in conflict and the practice of conflict transformation, and because it raises important issues at the present time. In each Dialogue, practitioners and scholars critically engage and debate with one another in light of their varying experiences.
Typically, a Dialogue includes one key article on a topic. Four or five other experts, from a range of perspectives, then contribute shorter responses to that article. Rather than presenting a single analysis, these practitioner-scholar dialogues stimulate debate by integrating different opinions, challenging prevailing views and comparing research findings with experiences and insights on the ground. Importantly, these Dialogues, which are regarded as broadly relevant, are also distributed in print version.
We invite readers to respond to the Dialogues. Interesting and original contributions can be added to the online version.
