Readers find here a volume that applies positioning theory in order to achieve a fuller and more in-depth understanding of conflict and its psychological resolution. Positioning theory is the study of the nature, formation, influence and ways of change of local systems of rights and duties as shared assumptions about them influence small scale interactions. This book will thus be of interest to social psychologists and anyone interested in the development and applications of positioning theory.

From the reviews:
"Positioning analysis generally examines the unfolding of conflicts through positions, story lines, and actions. … Psychologists and others interested in both inductive analyses and processes on recognizing cycles of oppression and then transforming such into testable hypotheses at the individual and group level should read this book, test its theses, and then properly confirm or disconfirm its assertions. Those just interested in considering the distinct possibility that Moghaddam and company are correct should also read this book." (Jesus (Jess) Aros and Lapde So, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 53 (37), September, 2008)Dalla quarta di copertina:
Positioning analysis penetrates beneath surface issues to their underlying psychological causes and social effects, with the intention of defusing conflict and preventing existing conflict from escalating. As the growing literature shows, positioning analysis methods are not only effective in interpersonal and intergroup problems, but have considerable potential for resolving disputes on the world stage. Global Conflict Resolution through Positioning Analysis starts with the daily disputes that result from our multiple social identities and evolving self-definitions, offers a new framework for understanding historical conflict, and brings vital new perspectives to current political and ideological battles. Twenty expert contributors examine scenarios as simple as a committee meeting of four people, as complicated as centuries-old social movements and the shifting tensions in the Middle East.
Its scope of coverage and depth of vision make Global Conflict Resolution through Positioning Analysis a reference as vital to professionals—negotiators and conflict managers, social and peace psychologists—as to students and researchers studying peace and conflict.
