Nonviolent Response to Terrorism

Nonviolent Response to Terrorism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Terrorism, which by definition targets civilians, is unacceptable, but a violent response to violence usually causes more violence. This book outlines some of the best thinking about nonviolent methods of resisting terrorism in the growing fields of international aid and nonviolent interposition.<p> The first section covers immediate nonviolent response to terrorism: international negotiations, mediations, and adjudication, UN and citizen sanctions, cross-cultural communication, citizen initiatives, international treaties and the World Court, the International Criminal Court, and nonviolent resistance through raising consciousness to mobilization and resisting state-sponsored terror. The second section, on long-term non-violent response to terrorism, discusses halting arms trade and militarism, stoppingarms flow to terrorists, "defunding" the military, building sustainable and just economies, aid to the poor, reducing privileged over-consumption, peace and conflict education, understanding and using the media, refugee repatriation, and helping indigenous liberation struggles.
