Postscript Regional Science and Peace Science: The Prospect of a Synthesis

  • Manas Chatterji


Walter Isard has devoted his career to the fields of Regional Science and Peace Science. For the last twenty years, he has channeled his enormous energy almost exclusively to Peace Science. It is not because he has nothing else to say about Regional Science but because he realised that almost all the theories and methods developed in regional science came to a stage where a conflict resolution approach is necessary for them to solve a practical problem. Also, he has a very strong commitment to universal peace and many times he has expressed his unhappiness because regional science is not more relevant to the developing countries where conflicts abound. Developments in Conflict Management and Peace Science can redress these deficiencies and open up a new era of development of Regional Science theory.
