This edited volume examines the sources, manifestations and management of conflict in East Asia, which contains many of the world's conflict flashpoints, such as the Korean Peninsula and the China-Taiwan Strait.

In particular, the book will elaborate on the following themes:

  1. general and NGO approaches to third-party mediation in conflict situations;
  2. regional conflict management approaches in East Asia; and
  3. third-party interventions in the context of Beijing-Taipei.

The volume examines third-party mediation experiences from both theoretical and historical/practical perspectives, arguing that mediation is of great significance for regional peace and stability in East Asia, with a focus on the important case of Taiwan-China.

This book will be of interest to students of regional security, Asian studies, peace studies, conflict studies and international relations.
