Abstract:
Conflict transformation, as distinct from conflict resolution or conflict settlement, is a largely misunderstood concept within the broadly defined field of conflict management. Conflict transformation through social and economic development is even less understood, reflected in the theoretical and practitioner discourse; the term is often used interchangeably with the terms conflict resolution and peacebuilding, oftentimes referring to the same approach, mistakenly located within a post-conflict frame of reference. While conflict transformation is primarily concerned with overcoming direct. cultural and structural violence over the long-term, most practical and theoretical efforts have concentrated on the removal of direct violence only over the short-term.
