The end of the Cold War brought about fundamental shifts in the international political system, which many scholars believe have had ripple effects in the field of national security; a major dilemma is that this shifting attitude has been slow to reach the Middle East, one of the most volatile, yet strategic, regions of the Cold-War era. The contributors to this volume come from a wide variety of backgrounds, but have a common interest in dialogue in support of peace in the Middle East. The text aims to put forward new concepts, new policies and new discourses about security: no singular alternative or magical approach is put forward, but a broader terrain is discussed, for debate and analysis of the possibilities and constraints for conflict and conflict resolution in the region.
