Research output: Chapter or section in a book/report/conference proceedingChapter or section


Thirty-four outstanding scholars write about the etymological meaning and the religious, legal and political connotations of the concept of 'peace'. They provide firm evidence to show how adopting a multi-faceted approach to 'peace' could ultimately contribute to the search for a more authentic understanding of 'peace' across the world stage. Hannes Kalisch is a member of the Enlhet community of the Paraguayan Chaco: stating at the outset that an identification of the Enlhet conceptual construct with a European/western concept of 'peace' carries the risk of projection, he approaches his description from within the Enlhet symbolic universe, and details its transfiguration over the last decades.
