Class of Nonviolence - Introduction
In addition to the eight-week "Class of Nonviolence," Colman McCarthy also has prepared readings for a 16-week "University" course. The "University" essays are not harder to read or understand than the 8-week class: it is just MORE, and divided into 16 sessions to conform with the typical college semester. (The 8-week class is also works very well as a high school or college course, as it leaves time for student projects and more discussion.) Twelve of the 48 essays in the 8-week class are omitted in the 16-week class. There are 41 additional essays, making a total of 77 readings. Those familiar with the 8-week class of Nonviolence will notice that 36 of the readings are the same: these are marked with a *. University Class of Nonviolence

From one country to another, the roots of conflict are different and so are the approaches to prevent violence from erupting. In this issue of Building Peace, our authors describe the various shapes and forms of successful violence prevention initiatives and what it takes, at the individual, community and governmental level, to foster peace.

Liberal Peacebuilding as Zombie: Workaround Strategies | UNRESTMAGAZINE | Engaging Systems of Violence Warning: This article is not for the faint of heart or “do-gooders.” It is written so as to engender (pun intended), unrest. It contains violent images. It was a Tartentino moment—- Jabri’s Lynch Lecture , delivered before a cadre of faculty, students and friends of the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution . She assembled her argument and then slashed the jugular of “liberal peacebuilding-as-enterprise,” and its lifeblood spattered across the faces of all those who believed in peacebuilding, as well as those who held it in deep suspicion. In my view, the neoliberal approach to peacebuilding that has undergirded conflict resolution practice, collapsed twitching on the floor of that auditorium, gasping for breath, with pleading eyes turned toward faculty and students who themselves aspired to be “instruments for peace,” and then it died.

The Hampshire-based Five College Program in Peace and World Security Studies (PAWSS) is a multidisciplinary educational program designed to stimulate student and faculty interest in the study of critical international issues, especially those connecting issues of conflict and the environment. Pursuing the study of peace and world security studies at Hampshire can allow for a wide range of self-designed concentrations--for example, an analysis of the relationship between militarization, economic development, and human rights in a particular region, or an investigation into traditional and innovative strategies for peacemaking and conflict resolution. PAWSS is a highly diversified program entailing the development of new courses, the sponsorship of public lectures and symposia, and the publication of specialized resource materials.
