Dangers on the Roads of Peace Research

  • Peter van den Dungen


What peace research hopes to achieve is such an urgent necessity for the whole world, that this very urgency is an invitation to hurry, to over-optimistic estimation of what is being done or can be done. There is no need, or rather there should be no need, to stress the risks of hurry, of faulty expectations and of taking misleading routes which appear to be short-cuts. Research which does not take these dangers sufficiently into account cannot be taken seriously. The ways of peace research, however, are strewn with many more obstacles, often more hidden, if not furtively overlooked.
