Doug Noll’s Peacemaking Books and Articles

I have written three peacemaking books over the years. I have a few more to write, and here is what I have currently published:

Peacemaking: Practicing at the Intersection of Law and Human Conflict is a comprehensive examination of how the law and the western legal tradition generally fails to acknowledge the multi-dimensional nature of human conflict. I wrote this book to use in a law class I taught called Peacemaking for Lawyers.

Sex, Politics & Religion at the Office: The New Competitive Advantage was co-authored by Dr. John Boogaert and myself. This book was way ahead of its time. We argue that diversity in the workplace can lead to a powerful competitive advantage under proper leadership. Most businesses and organizations are repressive and defensive towards diversity. As a result, their workplaces stifle creativity, energy, and life. If leaders use the principles we outline, they will find explosive new potential in their most valuable asset: their people.

Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts is my critique of peacemaking at the diplomatic level. I argue for the professionalization of international conflict mediation and demonstrate with case examples of how famous diplomats made situations worse rather than better because of their fundamental lack of skill. I was honored by the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR) Book of Year award in 2012.
