About this book

The world abounds with conflicts and the associated communication practices and technologies that perpetuate and contest conflict as it occurs in place. All conflicts are crucially connected with place, and all conflicts are communicated in multiple ways. This book explores the complex nexus among place, conflict and communication and brings together 11 investigations around the interplay of place, conflict and communication. The interdisciplinary focus includes education, history, international relations, law and sociology. The chapters are geographically diverse, traversing Aceh in Indonesia, Australia, England, Finland, Ireland, Singapore, South Africa and Zimbabwe. The book highlights the possibilities for reimagining the future so that more democratic and peaceful understandings of place can lead to fewer conflicts and less conflict-based communication. Better futures are possible only if place is replotted, conflict is reconceptualised and communication is recontextualised from new, varied and more inclusive perspectives with a vision to creating a more harmonious world.

Reviews

“A fascinating and unique project which links place, conflict and communication in our world. The “systemic” interlinking is appropriate as not only one aspect of one’s life is impacted by conflict, or how one manages this and the discourse about it. Conflict research and studies are vitally important to assist in avoiding, preventing, managing and resolving to find the best resolution for the personal and relational dimensions, as well as for communities, countries and the world.” (Mieke Brandon, co-author of Mediating with Families 4th edition 2018)
