Problems of Knowledge, Power, and Political Will

  • Ian S. SpearsEmail author


In this chapter, I consider problems that emerge in the practice and execution of conflict resolution. I examine the claims that an absence of knowledge, power, or political will is at the center of conflict resolution failures. The Skeptic and Believer perspectives are examined to illustrate how these ideas conspire against conflict resolution.
