Many other people are doing important and interesting things in an effort to move beyond intractability-in theory and in practice, in different locations and on different conflicts. Please share what you are doing here so we can all learn from each other.
Things we are interested in hearing about, for instance, include (but are not limited to)
- Books and articles you have written or are writing that relate to either intractable conflict theory, intervention practice, or both.
- Practice activities you have undertaken or know about that are likely to be of interest to others.
- Constructive advocacy efforts.
- Any other work that relates to our topics here that might be of interest to our visitors.
We also hope that BI and MBI participants will contribute to our discussions both on the Conflict Frontiers Seminar and on the What You Can Do To Help Limit Destructive Conflict Blog. In addition, we invite suggestions for new posts to any of the seminars and blogs. Make suggestions on our contact form.

Being validated is a basic need--that is getting met less and less. Face-to-face connection can fix that.
Randy Butler's Peacemaker Podcast
While our world seems to be falling apart, peacebuilders worldwide are working to put the pieces back together.
World Policy Journal Issue on Megalomania
Megalomania isn’t just a problem of a few bad leaders—it is far more ubiquitous and harmful.
Please fill out one of our Colleague Activities Forms to submit something for inclusion in this Blog.
All submissions are subject to approval. We ask only that participants follow a few simple and common sense ground rules:
- The post must address some aspect of the intractable conflict problem in a constructive way.
- Advocacy projects must reflect an honest effort to be as constructive as possible, trying to understand and work with –or at least not further alienate--adversaries wherever possible.
Bottom line--we are trying to avoid inflammatory posts, although we realize that there are likely to be significant differences of opinion regarding what is "constructive" or not. That's something we hope to talk about--here and in our Conflict Frontiers Seminar Discussions.
