New Paradigms of Peace Research

The Asia-Pacific Context

Edited by: Akihiko Kimijima, Vidya Jain

We are now observing a shift of the center of gravity, or the "engines" of human activities, from the Atlantic to the Asia-Pacific. Industrial productions, political conflicts, and militarization in the Asia-Pacific draw global attention. Additionally, so are intellectual, academic activities. The field of peace research theories and practices in this region have their own contributions. Gandhi's legacies and inspirations in the fields of economic globalization, peace education, and constitution are as relevant and important as ever. The lessons of the disasters of 3/11 in Japan echo Gandhian concerns. Conflict transformations and reconciliations in the region, such as ones between China and Japan, pose a big challenge. This book presents new paradigms in peace research that will be of interest to many readers.
