European Forum for
Restorative Justice
International Symposium on Military Operational Research
29th July to 1st August
ISMOR is an annual international symposium sponsored by the UK Ministry of Defence. Its
purpose is to foster excellence in analysis and its application to defence and security
through providing a forum for staff in government departments and agencies, international
organisations, academia and industry. It is open to all who would like to participate in its
discussions. A new feature this year is hosting the Cornwallis Group’s annual workshop
within ISMOR. The Cornwallis Group was established 19 years ago to address problems
and issues related to international peace and stability in the new environment following the
end of the Cold War.
The European Forum for Restorative Justice is offering,
during June, an amazing range of workshops, as well as
Braithwaite, Shadd Maruna,
Joanna Shapland). There are
5 workshop sessions, each
with a choice of 10 or 11 papers, dialogues or trainings, on
theory and practice from the
UK, Western and Eastern Europe, North and South America, Australia and even Singapore and Micronesia. Also
field trips to local projects, and
social events.

New Agenda
Journal of Dialogue Studies
Submission deadline: 11th July 2014
The Journal of Dialogue Studies is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed academic journal
published twice a year. The Journal seeks to bring together a body of original scholarship
on the theory and practice of dialogue that can be critically appraised and discussed. It aims
to contribute towards establishing 'dialogue studies' as a distinct academic field (or perhaps
even emerging discipline). It is hoped that this will be directly useful not only to scholars and
students but also to professionals and practitioners working in different contexts at various
cultural interfaces.
The editors would like to call for papers relating to ‘dialogue ethics’ for the forthcoming
issue. However, authors are also welcome to submit papers that address the topic of the
previous issue, namely ‘critiquing dialogue theories’, or indeed any other paper that comes
within the remit of the Journal as described below. All papers, regardless of their particular
theme, will be considered so long as they are in line with the aims and focus of the Journal.
This month’s Commentary is
strong statements about weak
relationships. Strong statements have been made about
the causes of war, better
chess players beating poorer
chess players, the value of
specific approaches to therapy, whether Britain is a Christian country, or David Moyes
being to blame for Manchester
United’s poor performance. In
contrast to these strong statements the evidence suggests
instead that in reality the posited relationships are weak.

Can the means used to resolve the conflict in South Africa
be applied to the PalestinianIsraeli conflict? Robi Damelin
wonders about this. Born in
South Africa during the apartheid era, she later lost her
son, who was serving with the
Israeli Army reserve in the
Occupied Territories. Robi’s
leads from a place of deep
personal pain to a belief that a
better future is possible.
