Human Ecology as Peacebuilding

ByAnne Goodman

This chapter explores peacebuilding, one of the ways Human Ecology is put into practice. It begins with a description of my location in the work and in this book. The next section describes the context of our present moment, seeing it as a pivotal hinge point. This is followed with conceptualizations of Human Ecology and other related ¿elds, and then de¿nitions and descriptions of peace and peacebuilding and some promising current approaches. The chapter concludes with a brief case study of InterChange, an international peacebuilding organization of which I am a founder and current president.
