Iustitia’s Healing. On the Potential of Synergies Between Law and Elicitive Conflict Transformation

  • Florencia Benitez-Schaefer
Chapter

Abstract

While law and conflict work are intrinsically connected, the relation between modern law and elicitive conflict transformation is not as easy as it seems. This chapter addresses a variety of aspects of this relation. Firstly, it points at some key tensions between the most widespread understanding of law and elicitive conflict work. Secondly, it portrays current innovative approaches to law that allow for transrational and transformative perspectives. Thirdly, it inquires into the field of law as a field in conflict which can be investigated with the tool of Elicitive Conflict Mapping in order to foster its potential for transformation. As a result of this exploration, the author proposes concrete entry points for the synergic interaction of the fields of conflict transformation and law.
