History of conflict resolution in Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries
Systematic and coordinated research into the history of European judicial history is still lacking. This also applies to forms of conflict resolution outside the courts. In the handbook project ‘History of Conflict Resolution in Europe’, about 200 authors deal with questions of judicial and extrajudicial conflict resolution from Antiquity to the present day (in four volumes; 1: Antiquity, 2: Middle Ages, 3: the early modern period, 4: 19th and 20th centuries). Peter Collin is the editor of volume 4, in which about 30 main articles and 20 regional survey articles offer an overview of the history of institutionalised and rule-based conflict resolution in modernity as well as of the current state of research. The volume appeared in summer 2021.
