The Moral Imagination

The Art and Soul of Building Peace

John Paul Lederach

In this new book, Ledrach explores the evolution of his understanding of peacebuilding by reflecting on his own experiences in the field. Peacebuilding, in his view, is both a learned skill and an art. Finding this art, he says, requires a worldview shift. Conflict professionals must envision their work as a creative act--an exercise of what Lederach terms the "moral imagination."
