Women on the Pilgrimage to Peace
This interdisciplinary volume examines intersecting journeys of women from around the globe on their pilgrimages to peace. It consists of twelve chapters that discuss theoretical and practical issues related to the study of peace. The focus of this volume is the successful movement from war to building peace through nonviolent means. It is a study of how and why contemporary tactics of a nonviolent approach have proved effective. International scholars from Ukraine, India, Lebanon, and the US, amongst others, explore the ways in which journeys towards peace have evolved amid the twenty-first century’s growing social changes in their respective countries.
This collection will provide a valuable resource for those researching and practising peace and conflict resolution studies, sociology, comparative cultural studies, history, and international development studies.
