In Ghana, the mythical Sankofa bird is depicted looking over its tail to retrieve from the past what is useful to change the future. Translated “going back and getting it,” the belief is that we must learn from the past in order to change the future.  In these days, many of us who engage with conflict and social justice find ourselves wondering what elements of historical movements of the past might help us to meet the challenge of an uncertain future.

 Co-editors of the PRASI anthology Re-Centering: Culture and Knowledge in Conflict Resolution Practice are now launching a new anthology. An opportunity to revisit themes of diversity and social justice in the conflict resolution community, the book is a work in progress, open to your ideas, needs, and contributions. We seek proposals for articles as well as offers of help.
