Beyond Disasters: Creating Opportunities for Peace examines the impact of natural disasters on conflicts by analyzing the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the 2005 earthquake in Kashmir. Co-authors Michael Renner and Zoë Chafe focus on two main themes: the impact of disasters on ongoing conflicts, and how the responses to disasters can change the dynamics of these conflicts. These significant and timely questions can help us understand how post-disaster interventions could contribute to conflict resolution and facilitate cooperation among warring factions by helping address the deeper socio-economic and political barriers within the conflict itself.
