Is Syria Suffering From a Family Business Conflict?

Posted on December 4, 2011 at 11:01pm 0 Comments

As a professional peacemaker, I tend to look at conflicts from the perspective of the people instead of politics. In the process of mediating thousands of conflicts, large and small, I find that conflict dynamics tend to fall into predictable patterns. This is especially true in family business conflicts.

The US Consideration of Military Action Against Iran-Dangerous to the Future of America

Besides the fact that the US will veto it in the Security Council, it is politically meaningless as long as Hamas and Fatah…


Libya at the Cross Roads: Genocidal Civil War or Peace?

Posted on August 23, 2011 at 5:00am 1 Comment

I just read a paper by Rotary Peace Scholar Duncan Autry that paralleled the ideas I present in my latest book Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts. What we concluded from entirely different approaches is that the traditional means of achieving peace is doomed to fail. This is especially true if applied to Libya. Libya has a choice, and the wrong choice will lead to disintegration of its…
