On Othering

Processes and Politics of Unpeace

Diverse contributions that argue that celebrating differences can create peaceful solutions to problems of people, institutions, ideas, conditions, and circumstances.

In every sphere of life, intolerance has split communities. The perpetuation of the Other—an “enemy” against whom prejudice is deemed acceptable—has fractured humanity, creating divisions that seemingly defy reconciliation. How, then, do we restore the bonds of connection? How do we shift from polarization to peace?

Touching on race, gender, sexuality, nationalism, and our relationship with the natural world from an international perspective, On Othering attends to the deep injustices brought about by othering and recommends actions for mending the relationships that are essential to renewing the possibility of peace.
