Issue 3: October 2013 Edition
Electronic Journal of Negotiation, Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding (NCRP)
California State University Dominguez Hills (CSUDH)
Welcome to Issue 3 of www.ejournalncrp.org, the totally online journal for the Negotiation, Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding (NCRP) program.
We offer another eclectic selection of articles, poems, artwork, and music that address emerging issues in conflict resolution and peacebuilding, both here in our own backyard, and for our international audience.
We culled submissions from students of all levels and disciplines from Interdisciplinary Studies to Studio Art to Occupational Therapy in a stunning array of media, including a unique evaluation of interactive video war games and an original flamenco guitar performance in response to a near-death experience.
Read brief poems or immerse yourself in learning about California’s punitive prison industry, reintegration difficulties of combat veterans returning from Iraq , cultural differences in mediation practices in Japan, fallacies about depression amongst aging Asian Americans, and how a paternal leadership style wrecked a comedy group.
Let us know where you are reading this. So far we have heard from one subscriber who whiled away time in the Sydney International Airport, another catching up on conflict resolution in Pukekohe (the onion capital of New Zealand), and from an interested occupational therapist in the heart of Surrey, England. One teacher reported assigning the article from Issue 2 on “The Truth and Reconciliation Commission” in South Africa by Justin Legrange (click SEARCH button to locate) as required reading for a class on international peacebuilding.
We are proud to report that Martha Sanchez who contributed her research paper to Issue 1 on “School Bullying and Conflict Resolution Programs in Latino South and East L.A.” has qualified to compete in the Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research on November 23, 2013. We wish her every success. Remember, you read it here first!
