Volume 31, Issue 1 (2019) Special Issue: CRIC

The articles in this issue have their origins in presentations at the “Freedom and Fragmentation” conference at the Centre for the Resolution of Intractable Conflict conference at Harris Manchester College Oxford in September 2018. Three articles address issues relating to Indigenous/First Nation/Aboriginal Peoples.

Another article asks: Why do peace processes fail? in “Preparing the Psychological Space for Peacemaking.”

Three additional articles relate to Syria. One of these is a first for the journal. Within the article "Stories Untold" by Manas Ghanem, readers will experience a visual story highlighting the work of a group of artists who created paintings of startling intensity.
