Abstract

This edition of JMACA includes six examinations of conflict interventionin vastly different areas of practice. JMACA‟s mission is to publish articles that bring theory to practice. The adage that “there is nothing more practical than a good theory” holds very true in the field of conflict intervention. Practice theory is a theory of how social beingsmake and transform the world in which they live. The dynamic interaction between a system of ideas intended to explain something and the experience of the application of these ideas in the world,underpins the development of good practice. This interactive process enables the examination of conflict intervention knowledge, the purpose of interventions and builds learning, facilitatingthe development of the profession. From studies relating to workplace mediation, to the application of a systemic approach to conflict theory, an evaluation of a peer mediation programme for Irish Travellers in prison, an examination of the nature of radicalisation in Eastern Africa,and the role of the European Union in conflict resolution, the articles in this journal issue contain theory and practice knowledge across a wide and stimulating range of applications.
