This volume contains the papers presented at the
Conference `Ethiopian and German Contributions to
Conflict Management and Resolution‘ of November 2005,
Addis Ababa. The aim of this conference was
to bring researchers and those working in the
practical field of conflict resolution together,
before the background of renewed internal and
international conflict. Research in conflict
resolution mechanisms is one of the most hopeful
fields in modern social sciences. Local
conflicts can have devastating effects on the state
and even involve the international level.
In turn, international conflict can also
destabilize society and create new local conflicts.
However, local conflict resolution mechanisms could be
of a great importance even within the international
scene. This volumes examines the experiences in
Ethiopia and the impact the acquired knowledge could
have for future conflict resolution and management.
