Ethnic and religious conflict has been as old as longing for peace. It proves to have been inhuman and disastrous in such a society where there is no a democratically-conducted consensus between actors or/and institutions.
The Making of Ethnic and Religious Conflict in Southeast Asia is an anthology of conflict phenomena, their context and dimensions, and appropriate resolutions hermeneutically shared in the light of multi-dimensional approaches. Suggested methods for handling the various typical conflicts are in fact as important as for understanding their state of becoming. So to speak, this book is of course a theoretical but also a practical contribution for the very participation in peace-building efforts as these writers have deliberately shown in a number of experiences.
This book is precisely dedicated to those who concern, experience and cognitively attached to the fact of civil war, self-determination conflict and fundamentalism, and at least, to those readers and practitioners without whom this conflict-laden region will still be burning by the fire of prejudice, anger, and war.
