Profile Information

My personal story:
I am an interdisciplinary social scientist with two Ph.D.s, in social medicine and social psychology. In 1996, I began my research on humiliation and its role in genocide and war. I am currently concentrating on planned books and articles on humiliation, as well as establishing the Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies network as an international platform for further work on the subject. I am affiliated with the Columbia University Conflict Resolution Network, New York, with the University of Oslo, Department of Psychology, Norway, the Maison des Sciences de l'Homme, Paris, and am teaching in South East Asia, the Middle East, Australia, and other places globally.
Why I want peace:
Perhaps the following quote from can illustrate why I want peace: "Pessimism is a luxury we can only afford in good times, in difficult times it easily represents a self-inflicted, self-fulfilling death sentence. This insight, to me, is real Realism or real Realpolitik, far from blue-eyed Idealism. We have to courageously resist the current tendency to suspect those who work for a better world to be hopeless idealists. This would mean Realpolitik letting disaster happen (by deepening fault lines instead of transcending them), and us not at least attempting to prevent this. Strange real Realpolitik!"

Excellent summary of your aims, and vision. News to me about the planned Middle East book, would be happy to provide any inspiration I can! I am now at my cabin just having answered an email from my friend Beni in Tel Aviv with whom I am planning to edit a book on Restorative Justice.
