  2. The Prophetic—Peacemaker Dynamic in the Light of Oscar Romero’s Theology of the Transfiguration.Carlo Calleja - 2021 - Journal for Peace and Justice Studies 30 (1-2):84-101.
    This essay explores the prophetic—peacemaker dynamic using Oscar Romero’s theology of the Transfiguration as an interpretative key. I argue that there is a continuum between being a prophet and being a peacemaker and that one is dependent on, and informs, the other. For Romero, the mystery of the Transfiguration involves a journey undertaken by the community from Calvary to the Resurrection. The Transfiguration is a stark reminder that the Cross always leads to the Resurrection and that there can be no (...)

    Two Contemporary Developments of Kant’s Cosmopolitan Project.Jinghua Chen - 2021 - Journal for Peace and Justice Studies 30 (1-2):64-83.
    Habermas and Rawls presented distinctive theories of new world order at the turn of the new century: the Constitutionalization of International Law and the Law of Peoples. Both theories aim to promote peace and justice all over the world. Unfortunately, their theories have been ignored by mainstream IR theorists. Since few scholars make a deep comparative study between Rawls’s Law of Peoples and Habermas’s Constitutionalization of International Law to reveal their crucial difference, this paper aims to fill this gap by (...)

  4. (A)Symmetrical Conflict Between Medical Doctors and Traditional and Faith Healers in the Era of Covid-19 in Rural Communities of Zimbabwe.Kudakwashe Chirambwi - 2021 - Journal for Peace and Justice Studies 30 (1-2):187-207.
    The paper examines the tension in the social construction of pandemic by doctors, traditional healers, and faith-based healers and considers the potential public health implications. Methodologically, the author uses a case study of Mwenezi District in Masvingo Province in Zimbabwe and draws on autoethnographic experiences to observe and analyse local level asymmetric confrontations as the Coronavirus pandemic unfolded. What emerges is how values, beliefs and scientific interpretations are contributing factors to conflict, and more significantly, the deleterious impact it has on (...)

  6. Memory of Oblivion and Oblivion of Memory.Nerzuk Ćurak - 2021 - Journal for Peace and Justice Studies 30 (1-2):3-20.
    Nationalist narratives in Bosnia and Herzegovina generate organized hypocrisy against the culture of memory which involves different protagonists of this society. The real name of the culture of memory of Bosnia and Herzegovina is the culture of denial. This is the very structure of its culture. By examining the perpetuation of memory into organized oblivion as a particular form of structural and cultural violence, the author will establish scholarly and axiological criteria in favor of the creation of conditions to end (...)

  10. Solutions to Displacement.Lily Kaufmann - 2021 - Journal for Peace and Justice Studies 30 (1-2):44-63.
    As displacement increases due to conflict and climate change, it is vital to find permanent solutions to the global refugee crisis. Currently, refugees are predominantly hosted in less-developed states, to the detriment of both the refugees and the communities providing shelter, while developed states with the financial capacity to provide permanent resettlement restrict the number of refugees accepted. Despite anti-immigrant rhetoric, many developed countries are dependent on economic immigrants to provide population influx and economic growth. Examining this dependency while exploring (...)

  11. The Canadian Federal Department of Peace Initiative.Victor Kliewer & Sean Byrne - 2021 - Journal for Peace and Justice Studies 30 (1-2):126-146.
    This article examines the possibility of establishing a Department of Peace as a Department of the Government of Canada. The topic has been introduced in Parliament twice, as Bill C-447 in 2009 and as Bill C-373 in 2011, without any further actions beyond the formal First Reading. The introduction of the bills could only happen on the basis of significant support among Canadians. At present efforts to introduce the DOP continue, although in somewhat muted form. Based largely on oral interviews, (...)

  12. Religion as a Cohesive or Divisive Factor in the Process of Peacebuilding.Danica Lazović - 2021 - Journal for Peace and Justice Studies 30 (1-2):21-43.
    The intensification of ethnic and religious identity, accompanied by growing tendencies for creating new national states and escalations of regional conflicts, characterize the post-Cold War era. This article examines the growing impact of religion and the potential of religious activism as a tool for peacebuilding. A case study of Bosnia and Herzegovina will be accompanied by a historical-genealogical approach and analysis and deduction methods. By using those methods, I will answer the question of whether religion has a cohesive role or (...)

    Though the heroic strides, accomplishments and sacrifices of many clerics who have led exemplary lives in the Catholic priesthood remain indelible, we are faced today with a preponderance of allegations and claims of clerical sexual abuse suggesting that both the Catholic Church and priesthood are experiencing crises of different kinds. Clerical sexual abuse is a contradiction of the life of chastity, one of the evangelical virtues which are corollaries of responding to the call to the Roman Catholic priesthood. How those (...)

  15. Peacebuilding Through the Lens of an Emancipatory Peacebuilding Paradigm.Joshua Okyere - 2021 - Journal for Peace and Justice Studies 30 (1-2):173-186.
    Critical and Emancipatory Theory of peacebuilding emerged as the sixth school of thought in Peace and Conflict Studies to critique the liberal and neoliberal approaches to peacebuilding. CET contends that liberal and neoliberal approaches to peacebuilding are discriminatory and biased, perpetrates the interest of Western elites, hinders the achievement of social justice, and considers the local as insignificant for peacebuilding. A call for the reformation of the liberal and neoliberal approaches necessitated the CET school of thought to outline certain principles (...)

    Violence Against the Queer Community in Turkey.Mehmet Yavuz & Sean Byrne - 2021 - Journal for Peace and Justice Studies 30 (1-2):102-125.
    There is little attempt by the Turkish government to end violence directed against queer people or to provide intervention and prevention services. This article explores the social and legal traditions that the Turkish state maintains to oppress the queer community and to prevent people from accessing their basic human needs. In order to understand violence orchestrated against Turkey’s queer people, it is important to explore some of the threats they face on an everyday basis. These threats include unemployment, harassment, discrimination, (...)
