Volume 1, Issue 1 (2017)

The special theme for this, our inaugural online issue of the JSE, is "Peacebuilding," which encompasses all activities before, during and after conflict aimed at reducing intergroup tensions, building positive intergroup relations, and developing an environment that guarantees rights, prevents violence and sustains human flourishing. Peacebuilding involves many different activities and projects that address the causes of intergroup tensions, conflict and violence, both structural and direct, and that seek to establish both negative and positive peace, the absence of violence and/or the presence of social justice.
