Landon Hancock Co-edits New Book, Zones of Peace

Posted Mar. 30, 2007


Assistant Professor Landon Hancock's new book, Zones of Peace, co-edited with Christopher Mitchell, examines sanctuary as it relates to historical and modern conflicts from the Philippines to Colombia and Sudan.  It charts the formation and evolution of these varied "zones of peace," using case studies to highlight efforts by local people to achieve safety and democracy amid and following violent civil conflict, and attempts to arrive at a "theory of sanctuary" that may allow for new and useful peacebuilding strategies.
