The Moral Imagination

John Paul Lederach (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses a critical but overlooked component of peacebuilding: the craft of watching webs. The web approach suggests that the way out of the pattern of repeated violence goes through the web of relational spaces in the context. Finding the relational spaces will mean that the location for sustaining social change in the context can be found. The approach of web watching also suggests that the process of locating webs demands careful attention to how we are in and how we relate to the setting.

Keywords:   watching webs, peacebuilding, finding place, stillness, humility, sensuous perception
