Intractable conflicts cause severe damage to the involved parties and to their relations. This damage must be properly addressed in order to ameliorate the wellbeing of the rivals and to prevent the re-eruption of conflicts. This book describes the first inclusive model to address this damage, a model that integrates three processes: the Active Reconciliation process (collaboration of the rivals on conflict-related issues, e.g., a historians’ commission to revise history textbooks in order to reach reconciliation), the Passive Reconciliation process (collaboration of the rivals on instrumental non-conflict-related issues, e.g., health or economy, but as a by-product, reconciliation is advanced) and the Self-Healing process (each rival party heals itself independently of its rival). The book theoretically describes these processes in detail and considers their mutual relations. To that end, empirical examples from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and other conflicts worldwide are provided. The book is relevant to students and scholars of international relations, political science, diplomacy, law and conflict studies, as well as peace activists and the general intellectual public.
