RIPAR (Research in Peace and Reconciliation)


   Latin America         Sub-Saharan Africa             Grafik RIPAR 3                  Former Soviet Union

The series "Research in Peace and Reconciliation" (RIPAR) provides an unique overview of worldwide research on peace and reconciliation. We follow a transdisciplinary perspective, combining Political Science, Psychology, History, Sociology, Law, Religious Studies, Theology, Economics and Cultural Anthropology.

The series deals with the origins of the concept of reconciliation in the Bible as well as with the experiences of Truth and Reconciliation Commissions around the globe, with Muslim concepts of peace as well as with the psychology of intergroup reconciliation. Some of the authors are internationally renowned, some are innovative young scholars from different countries. We plan to publish seven volumes, all of them in English.

The series is edited by Prof. Dr. Martin Leiner (Jena), in co-operation with:

  • Prof. Dr. Benoît Bourgine (Louvain-la-Neuve),
  • Prof. Dr. Francois Dermange (Genf),
  • Prof. Dr. Dennis Doyle (Dayton/Ohio),
  • Prof. Dr. Makoto Mizutani (Kyoto),
  • Prof. Dr. Arie Nadler (Tel Aviv),
  • Prof. Dr. Dr. Bertram Schmitz (Jena),
